INCLAM leverages its experience in a flood control project in the Philippines

flipiniasabril eng

The Philippines is one of the countries of Southeast Asia with a greater economic growth in recent years. At the same time, and due to the particular geographical location of this archipelago (composed of more than 7,000 islands), it is also one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to extreme events - such as typhoons, tropical storms and floods -, whose frequency and impacts have also been aggravated by climate change.

The Government of the Philippines, with the help of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), is currently promoting strong investment initiatives in flood protection measures to deal with the impacts of climate change.

In line with the above, Rodrigo Duterte, the current President of the Philippines, is firmly determined to take advantage of and consolidate this period of economic prosperity to transform the country and develop and improve the infrastructures that it demands. For this, the country’s central administration is promoting the execution of a public investment program unprecedented in the country, the so-called "Build, Build, Build" Program. Unlike previous initiatives, these investments are presented as the final outcome of a planning process based on the best available practices, addressing several national concerns: a) ensuring the economic and environmental sustainability of the actions to be implemented; b) seeking the maximum possible social endorsement and; c) accelerate all the processes that go from design to final execution; with a special emphasis on a more effective coordination among all the administrations involved. Under these premises, this investment program has the administrative and financial support of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), through a specific mechanism called the Infrastructure Preparation and Innovation Facility (IPIF).

The IPIF is structured in four parts or lots, of which Lot No. 2 (Flood Mitigation) has a total economic endowment of USD 31.36 million and focuses on providing technical assistance to the Ministry of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) of the Government of the Philippines during the period 2018-2022, helping in the development of the plan, design and execution of the necessary flood control actions in 6 priority river basins.

The international consortium formed by Egis Group (France), INCLAM and KECC (South Korea), will advise the Government of the Philippines on flood management.

The bidding process, launched by the ADB at the end of 2017, was highly competitive and with the utmost interest and participation from the main companies in the sector. The final selection was quality based and only considered technical excellence-related criteria.

Finally, the project was awarded to a consortium led by the French company Egis Eau (http://www.egis.fr), two more companies of its same business group (Egis International and Egis Structure Environnement), INCLAM and the South Korean company KECC. The official signing ceremony of the contract, held on April 4, was the culmination of more than two months of complex negotiations with the DPWH, after a first key session of two weeks, held in person at Metro Manila, with the participation of a technical and commercial delegation of all consortium partners.

The official signing ceremony of the contract, held on April 4th, was the culmination of more than two months of complex negotiations with the DPWH, after a first key session of two weeks, held in person in Metro Manila and with the participation of a technical and commercial delegation of all consortium partners.

Scheme of the operations of the global contract awarded to INCLAM and its partners by the DPWH, under the supervision of the ADB: a transversal contract of specialized technical assistance, supplemented with several subprojects defined on demand.


The Government of the Philippines estimates a total investment of over USD 450 million to address floods in 6 priority watersheds of the country.

The priority basins considered by the DPWH are those of Abra (5,125 km2) and Apayao-Abulog (3,372 km2), in the northern part of the island of Luzon; that of Jalaur (1,503 km2), in Panay island (Western Visayas); that of Agus (1,645 km2), in the northern part of the island of Mindanao; and finally, those of Buayan-Malungon (1,425 km2) and Tagum-Libuganon (3,064 km2) in the southern part of that same island. In these six basins, the DPWH has estimated a total volume of investment in hydraulic infrastructure of some USD 454.6 million. One of the main tasks of the Consortium will be to help the DPWH optimize that investment and make it a reality.

The awarding of this contract supports INCLAM’s commitment to consolidate its presence in the emerging market of Southeast Asia. Also, it is the result of INCLAM’S renowned trajectory of more than three decades devoted to the provision of value-added consulting services, particularly in the scope of planning and management of flood risks.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC PREPARES THE SECURITY OF ITS DAMS AGAINST THE CLIMATE CHANGE EFFECTS

The Dominican Republic has been punished by several hurricanes and tropical storms that have caused catastrophic damages throughout the country´s history, causing major impacts on the vital resources for the provision of the population, and also affecting significantly dams and reservoirs.

After verifying the consequences of the hurricane seasons, Dominican Republic considered necessary to review the conditions of its resources and to take measures to resolve the possible impacts.

INCLAM entered into the work starting from here, as it lead the project "International Consulting Services in Dam and Reservoir Operation," which took place in 13 major dams in the Dominican Republic. Several of the dams were higher than 100 meters, and they are essential for supplying water for human consumption, irrigation, producing electricity of the country and preventing floods.

The tasks of INCLAM was divided into three sections, first of which was to develop a plan and dam safety studies. This plan began by creating a technical file of the dams, and database where all the available material was collected and analyzed. The database included more than 12 000 files.

Using the created technical file, the experts of INCLAM visited and examined the dams and their facilities in order to propose actions aimed at resolving the detected shortcomings and conduct seismic studies, structural dam analysis, and auscultation analysis.

Hatillored

On the other hand, in order to involve the communities located downstream of the dam, and the organisations and authorities in charge of dam safety and prevention and emergency response, six public workshops were organized. Almost 50 organizations and hundreds of participants attended the workshop.

In order to involve Dominican Republic institutions, ten workshops on Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) were organized. In these workshops participated staff of INDRHI and the hydraulic operation managers of the EGEHID, the Hydroelectric Generation Company.

Furthermore, operation and maintenance manuals of nine reservoir systems were drafted, and sediment management plan was prepared. The latter plan deals with the sediment problem of the reservoirs. Over the time, the reservoirs have lost significant amounts of their useful volume.
The second section of the project comprised of reassessing the hydrology of the reservoirs.

The first step was to study the rainfall using specific methodologies for regions affected by hurricanes. The next step was to compile regional rainfall maps and estimate the flood flow rate to evaluate the hydrological security of the dams, and downstream water discharge of the overflow rates. The last step was to conduct hydraulic simulations using GUAD-2D program developed by INCLAM and Digital Terrain Model of the NASA. By using these programs, it was possible to delimit the floodplains caused by potential dam break.

The third main aspect of the project was related to institutional strengthening, to developing a strategic plan for the Dam Department of INDRHI. To this end, a participatory process was used. During the process, several personal interviews were conducted and a workshop was organized. All this was done bearing in mind the experience and the proposal of the persons belonging to Dam Department and other entities of INDRHI.

A new organizational chart for the Dam Department was proposed, according to the guidelines of the Ministry of Government Administration, and a Recruiting and Selection Plan was prepared. The plan includes a search for candidates for vacant posts. A Training Plan for current employees of the Department was also formulated.

The last step was to conduct a review of the water regulating institutions of the Dominican Republic, and analysis on legislation of other countries, Based on these studies, a Project for Modifying Legislation and Standards was presented. The project collects recommendations on the legal and regulatory framework applicable to Dominican Republic.

This great work, carried out by INCLAM´s staff together with local collaborators was finalized at the end of 2016 with and excellent rating and great satisfaction on the part of the group which once again makes clear that the big projects always need human talent and experience gained working as a team and naturally the latest technology.

MORE THAN 130,000 INHABITANTS WILL BENEFIT FROM THE NEW MUNICIPAL WATER SYSTEM OF GUATEMALA

The water and sanitary sewer coverage in Guatemala is currently below the mean Latin American values, which are 86 % for water and 57 % for sanitation. A significant part of the supply networks do not provide drinking water thus the water has to be treated by the final users to guarantee its safe use. There is a great difference in sanitary service coverage in the cities integrated into the urban and city areas; the cities have wider supply networks than the urban areas.

The earthquakes in 2007 and 2012 aggravated the problem as they caused deterioration in the existing networks thus leading to pipeline breaks and subsequent water leakages in the supply networks, loss of service and lack of efficiency of the networks.

Another serious problem is the contamination of surface water resources derived from untreated wastewater and this together with the lack of water quality monitoring network for surface and groundwater worsens significantly the sicknesses stemming from water contamination and inadequate sanitation.

In order to respond to this situation the Republic of Guatemala has started a PROGRAM FOR WATER SUPPLY AND SANITATION FOR HUMAN DEVELOPMENT (PHASE I) developed by an agreement signed by INFOM-BID-AECID and financed by the Inter-American Development Bank, in agreement with the Government of Spain through the Cooperation Fund for Water and Sanitation in Latin America and the Caribbean (FCAS) with a budget of 50 million USD to execute partially the phase I of the program.

Guatemala

This phase included the "Pre-investment Studies of Drinking Water and Sanitary Sewage system of urban areas in six (6) departments in the Republic of Guatemala in six municipalities of San Marcos" carried out by INCLAM in Joint Venture with Novotecni

The primary objective of INCLAM was to create a strategy, plans and final design of the projects which will enable the municipalities to repair, refurbish and extend the water systems and sewers quickly and in technically advanced manner without interrupting the services and causing minimal inconveniences to the users in the urban and peri-urban areas of the prioritized municipalities. Simultaneously, measures for improving the operational and administrative effectiveness were planned.

The work included 12 feasibility studies, six definitive water designs and six sanitations and sanitary sewers. This project benefits a variety of users, inhabitants of the six already mentioned districts. There are more than 135 000 inhabitants. It is a basic service with major significance for improving the quality of life of the population.

The methodology used comprised of a technical analysis of drinking water, sewer system, sanitation and the current and future demands, evaluation of the current systems and planning of solutions which will enable to improve the coverage of the service, continuity, and quality.

In order to analyze the sewer system networks, weaknesses and shortcomings in operation were identified and hydraulic simulation models using IT tool SWMM were developed. Based on the detected problem a set of improvements was planned, and they were included in the simulation models in order to verify using the models whether the operation of the proposed solution was correct. Once the process was finalized, a sanitary supply network providing adequate design to face the future wastewater demands and the precipitation effects for 30 years return period was defined.

As a part of improving the sewer system network, INCLAM included a design of a wastewater treatment plant complying the current norms related to surface water bodies discharge thus contributing to the environmental quality improvement. The relevant economic, financial and socioeconomic evaluations were made. The result of the socioeconomic evaluation allows guaranteeing that the projects are sustainable for the municipalities with the proposed rated combined for water and sewerage.

These studies bring Inclam Group closer to the country and strengthen its role as a benchmark company in water engineering sector not only in Guatemala but throughout the Latin American region.

Interviewing Prof. Dr. Matthias Maier

EntrevistaWEB

Which are the main lines of activity of Stadtwerke Karlsruhe?

The Stadtwerke Karlsruhe GmbH is the traditional local supplier of energy (electricity, natural gas, long-distance district heat) and drinking water of the city of Karlsruhe. The actual development is to not only offer the basic product but also related services, for example heating and cooling of buildings.

What are the major challenges in the water sector for SWKA?

I see currently three major challenges for the water sector in Karlsruhe. First we notice on the one hand a significant decline of the average drinking water consumption per head since the mid 80s. On the other hand detailed climate change modelling for the Karlsruhe area shows agreat increase of the difference between the water demand of average days and the water demand of hot summer days as a result of the ongoing climate change. So we have to increase the capacity of the treatment while the average consumption declines. The challenge is to keep water prices stable in a difficult economical situation in multiutility companies.

The second challenge is the increasing awareness of trace substances in the water. With continuous improvements in water analytics we are able to find more and more fingerprints eg. ofdegradation products of herbicides, pesticides and pharmaceutical products also in well protected water resources. The problem is not the concern about resulting health issues, the concentrations are by far too small for that. The challenge is the communication with the consumers. The water used in the drinking water sector should be “pure and free of every contaminant” from a consumers perspective. Today due to scientific results in the assessment of contaminants we have better knowledge on values on health. The challenge is to inform our customers of the analytic results and encouraging their trust in the quality of drinking water.

The third major challenge is the actual development in the political framework. Water suppliers in Germany are usually owned by local municipalities. Water supply is considered as a public duty that should be done by public companies, preferably on a local level to deliver this service close to the citizens and consumers. Due to economic reasons and restrictions when mixing water of different qualities, water supply of one area is a monopoly and there should be no liberalization like in the field of electricity and gas. Nevertheless there are individual interests trying to turn the public water sector into a market, provide access to that market for private companies and install rules for competition. This pressure exists within Germany and increases on a European level. In the EU context we now need to have a close eye on the free trade agreements and its influence on the drinking water sector that the EU is currently planning, like the CETA agreement with Canada, the TTIP agreement with the US and the TiSA agreement with 22 other countries.

SWKA have done their own assessment of CETA, TTIP and TiSA regarding water. What are the main results?

First of all there are exceptions for water supply in these agreements to protect public water supply but these exceptions are not legally safe and contain various loopholes. We are especially worried about the investment protection in CETA and TTIP as it grants special rights to foreign companies which we do not have. This could result in severe disadvantages for us, for example when competing for water resources or trying to design a water protection area. It is our firm conviction that water supply as well as water resources have to be excluded from investment protection. Additionally we regard the European precautionary principle as crucial for protection of water resources. But the guaranties for the precautionary principle in CETA are considered by the water sector to be too weak.

Water Quality in Karlsruhe network is recognized and valued by several specialized magazinesas excellent. How do you achieve this challenge?

In Karlsruhe we exclusively use ground water for the production of drinking water. The basis and fundamentals of the drinking water quality management in Karlsruhe is the preventive protection of the ground water resource. The first step was to position our water works in a way to minimize the risks of ground water pollution in its catchment area. Then we installed well head protection areas for all out water works. We are involved in all major projects in the protection areas and thereby can advise actions to minimize resulting risks. The latest development is to install a risk management for our ground water resource.

Recently there has been a lot of talk about Water-Energy Nexus in the water sector in Germany. In your opinion, which are the main barriers and key issues to achieve the integration between thesetwo vectors?

The need to increase energy efficiency is usually driven by increasing energy costs and by enterprise policies to reduce the carbon dioxide footprint. When thinking about measures in this regard it is important to always keep in mind that the uninterrupted water supply and the highest possible water quality are not to be put at risk and that all measures have to be economically sensible.

The potential of energy savings in water supplyis very high, what arewater utilities doing in this respect?

The largest potential in water supply is generally probably to change old pumps and old power transformers. Exchanging them often charges off within very few years. Then there is the field of lighting and air conditioning that has to be examined. Alsothe operation schedule of the pumps can often be optimized to save energy or alternatively to preferentially use cheaper energy.

SWKA participated as a Pilot Case in a European RDIproject with INCLAM for the research for efficiency solutions in water supply. How was your experience in this project?

Although the SWKA have participated in numerous RDI projects before, the European RDI project “WatERP” was the first RDI with that many (9) international partners. This heterogeneous partnership with solid backgrounds in ICT and water technologies, allowed to develop a very promising prototype highly focused on water-energy nexus for water supply distribution networks.

“WatERP” was the starting point for us to think about innovative strategies to optimize our daily management and operation of water supply. INCLAM’s follow-up project that has its focus on the development aspect hasimproved the prototype of the research project substantially and made it easy to apply in our everyday work routine.

In order to improve the operation of the water networks and save energy, SWKA has installed WatEner. What is your experience so far?

Currently, WatEner is installed in our network and helped us analyze past operational scenarios and find new reliable operation strategies improving efficiency in terms of economic cost, water and energy usage and greenhouse gases production. This is the first step to generate knowledge for machine learning processes in order to fully implement WatEner in our daily operation.

Furthermore, WatEner is a very powerful tool to make easy real time access to the relevant data in daily operation such as water production, energy consumption, economic costs or storage volumes. Also, the platform allows to quickly generate a hydraulic model run of our water supply network.

Finally, and verymeaningful, 
WatEner consolidates the initial promise of saving 5 to 7% of energy for the network pumps of our water works by optimizing the pumping schedule.



Thank you.

Accelerating carbon market development in Southern and Eastern Mediterranean Countries (SEMED)

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), with financial backing from Spain, is supporting the transition to low carbon economies in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean (SEMED) region with the launch of a new series of market-based programmes to reduce carbon emissions.

The EBRD’s “Carbon Crediting Approach in SEMED” will promote the development of Integrated Carbon Programs (ICPs) for the region, which in the EBRD context comprises Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia. ICPs are comprehensive packages that include policy dialogue, technical assistance, carbon pricing for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction projects and associated results-based payments.

Following the successful conclusion of the COP21 Paris Climate Agreement, a key focus has been placed on the development of market-based instruments to help reduce carbon emissions. Both climate finance and carbon markets are expected to have an important role in delivering the transition to low-carbon economies.

The project in SEMED is the first ICP starting to run. Funded by Spain, the overall goal of the project is to identify an appropriate approach to put a price on carbon credits resulting from renewable energy projects developed in the region, herein including the lessons from the Clean Development Mechanism.

The 3-year long contract has been awarded to a consortium led by the Spanish firm INCLAM CO2 and includes partners such as South Pole Group, TYPSA, AENOR, Enviro Consulting International (ECI) and the Egypt National Cleaner Production Centre (ENCPC). The consortium will work in close collaboration with the renewable energy project sponsors, authorities in the SEMED region as well as the Spanish Climate Change Office from the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment of Spain.

The consortium will also be involving experts in climate change, renewable energy, and carbon markets from across the region and beyond.

Together, the consortium will seek to fulfill the goal of the project by:

- Developing, implementing and purchasing carbon credits from a carbon credit up-scaled CDM based approach in the renewable energy sector.
- Contributing to and supporting the carbon market development by reviewing the carbon market options, including domestic use of carbon credits and development of local capacity, in particular in the area of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) and in the management of large emission reduction mechanisms.
- Contributing to a further development of up-scaled CDM based carbon credit instruments, such as Programme of Activities (PoA) CDM or new mechanisms according to the latest international climate policy developments.

The project is about pre-2020 climate action but also aims to contribute to discussions on the design and development of article 6 of the Paris Agreement.

Developing green growth in the “NEW ASIAN TIGER”


Green Cities Flood Management for Sustainable Development

    Vietnam1
We develop Urban Green Growth Models 

As a sign of its firm commitment to consolidate its presence in the Southeast Asia and to become one of the leading consultants of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in the planning and hydraulic control, INCLAM Group developed in 2015 one of its most strategic projects in this multilateral organization: Secondary Cities Development Program (Green Cities) in Vietnam.

This program has an innovative, flexible, scalable, multisectoral, and multidisciplinary approach, designed specifically for the emerging Southeast Asian Cities. The approach involves a paradigm shift focused on the integration of environmental management in the urban planning processes. The aim is to ensure the sustainability of the urban infrastructure investments and to improve the habitability conditions and the resilience of the cities against natural disasters in climate change context and, at the same time, enhance and highlight their needs and particular assets (historical heritage, landscape value, tourism potential, etc.).

Vietnam is one of the countries of Southeast Asia worst hit by tropical storms and floods.

As for its special geographic location and terrain, Vietnam is endowed with abundant water resources, and it regularly encounters all type of natural disasters. The heavy storm (typhoons) and floods are the most destructive phenomena, and they affect approximately 60 % of the surface of the country and more than 70 % of the population, which traditionally has occupied floodplains where rice is cultivated, and aquaculture and fishing activities are practiced. The high economic growth of the country, a fruit of the transition of a rural economy to an economy based on industry and services, requires minimizing the risks, and social, economic and environmental costs, derived from accelerated urbanization.

The Technical Assitance Contract to ABD, in which Inclam Group participates, focuses on three capital cities of provinces with strategic character in Vietnam. Ha Giang (~72,000 inhabitants) is located 20 kilometers from the border of China, in the headwaters of the Lô River Basin and it is the access way to the Dong Van karst plateau Geopark, an area which has a high ecological and landscape value acknowledged by UNESCO. On a different note, Vinh Yen (76.650 inhabitants) is located within the industrial belt of the Northern Economic Region of Vietnam, on the fertile flood plains of the Red River Delta, and its main asset is Dam lake, which has high tourism potential. Lastly, Hue (~340.000 inhabitants), the old capital of the country, is located downstream of the Perfume River Basin (Huong), near the Tam Giang Lagoon. The main asset of the City is the Imperial Citadel, listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Site in 1993.

Specifically, the experts of INCLAM Group developed a 
diagnosis of the flood problem in each city, emphasizing a holistic view and using decision support tools. Furthermore, recommendation and practical design criteria were given for optimizing the protection and flood resilience. A key factor in this work was the close collaboration within the Consortium, both with the Canadian Specialists as well as with the Vietnamese Partner. This cooperation made it possible to overcome cultural, language and technical barriers.

The sub-projects will have the financial support of the ADB according to the innovative payment formula based on the results. Furthermore, the completed work will help to strengthen the new sustainable urban planning philosophy promoted by the Program.

The 22nd of March is a day dedicated to highlighting the vital role of water and encouraging improvements to solve water-related difficulties around the world. It is a day for discussing how we should manage water resources in the future. The General Assembly of the United Nations designated the 22nd of March 1993 as the first World Water day. 23 years have gone by and the World Water day is still being held.

We, as a company, know that our role is not only to design and execute projects but also create resources for and in the target population so that the solution will be a resource for human development in the target area.

INCLAM is fully aware how important it is to build local capacity and transfer knowledge from companies and institutions to local population to assure the future and the sustainability of the implemented solutions. It is also essential to support the communities and families in improving the sanitation conditions by raising awareness of the importance of proper hygiene.
