  • A Dutch first in the polder - Water Board Zuiderzeeland measures flow rates to achieve sustainability

    The Dutch province of Flevoland lies metres below sea-level. That’s why rain and seepage need to be removed from the polder, some 6 metres up. And that’s the reason Flevoland is drained continuously by seven huge pumping stations. The quantity of energy involved in this is as great as the energy consumption of 4,000 households. Water Board Zuiderzeeland has launched the ‘Energy ...
