About 1,2 million people live in the area managed by Hoogheemraadschap van Delfland, and roughly 40.000 businesses are situated there. Delfland ensures security through sturdy dunes and dikes, and dry feet thanks to pumping stations and a well-functioning water system. In all this Delfland is heavily dependent on IT. When they were ready to outsource their IT environment in 2012, they found a reliable partner in NorthC.
Delfland’s water system ensures good water quality in ditches and canals and regulates the cleansing of wastewater. Well-functioning IT is essential to the business processes that ensure the water board can conduct these tasks well and securely. Delfland needs to be able to remotely control about 200 pumping stations 24/7. Delfland dike inspectors are out in the field using iPads to report on the conditions of over 700 km of dike. At the wastewater treatment plant, the purification process is monitored via smart process automation systems.
