Water transmission systems

Water transmission systems

The worldwide demand for water is growing continuously. This is particularly the case in arid areas where water often has to be transported over large distances to satisfy the needs of the local population and industry.

The extremely large quantities of water which have to be pumped through such pipelines for hundreds of kilometers require complex facilities. Ensuring the continuous availability of water pipelines together with cost efficiency are special challenges to be addressed with every project. The optimisation of investment and operating costs is one of ILF’s core competences.

For more than three decades, ILF has been involved in the design and implementation of many outstanding international water transmission projects. ILF has become an international market leader in the field of large-scale water transmission systems.
