The most important functions within a waste water chain in the Netherlands are the collection, transport and purification of waste water from citizens and companies for the benefit of public health. Ensuring good water quality is also one of the core tasks. Increasing importance is also attached to other social tasks in areas such as circularity, energy transition and sustainability, but at the same time there is also public money: how do we deal with this as efficiently as possible? Citizens and politicians often seem to see only taxes, but have little awareness of the performance and risks involved.

There is a shift from management and maintenance to asset management. It is not only necessary to ensure that assets currently contribute to desired organizational goals, but it is also necessary to ensure that this is the case in the longer term. This leads to various issues in the field of residual lifespan, long term asset planning in relation to aging assets, consequences for tax rates; 

•    How to implement sustainability ambition? 
•    What does the application of new technologies mean for (technical) risks, for example with existing transport systems? 
•    Do we comply with laws and regulations, what is expected and what is done to fulfill compliance? 
•    The new environmental law and safety also require changes to the organization. What are these questions, and what does that mean for the water boards?

In short, due to developments and expectations within and outside the water world, the water boards are facing more and greater challenges. Bilfinger Tebodin would therefore like to invite you to share knowledge about the above topics on this interactive Water Board Day.

Walk in starts at 12.15 hours with lunch. The official program will be opened at 13:00 hours by Wim van den Brink, Managing Director Bilfinger Tebodin Northwest Europe.

  • Presentation on ageing assets (Bilfinger Tebodin)
