leaders in hydraulic network analysis
Seminars at HydroCo
HydroCo have successfully hosted several modelling related seminars, promoting 'best practice' within our industry and creating a forum for water modellers to discuss current issues. These seminars have proved very popular, with attendance from many of the leading water PLC's and consultants.
If you would be interested in attending one of our seminars, please email us with your interest and we will add you to our mailing list, info@hydroco.co.uk.
Sample Seminar Presentations
Our seminars usually centre on a given theme which reflects upon current issues facing the water industry. Most of the content usually features network modelling techniques and innovative new ways to use this valuable planning tool, although some cover the broader concerns in the industry.
Our presenters aim to create a forum for thought and discussion, and do not intended to use the presentations as a sales pitch (a common feature at many of today's conferences and seminars). At HydroCo we like to look at these topics from many different angles, which can often lead our delegates questioning their current ideas and methodologies, and open their minds to the wider issues.
