Access to sustainable water is a vital resource for the peaceful functioning of any society. With our expertise, we improve the water supply of arid regions or regions that may be adversely affected by climate change in the future.
Global warming intensifies water shortages. Droughts are no longer limited to traditional arid regions. Severe water restrictions are increasingly imposed in Europe, affecting the quality of life and human activities.
Groundwater is a precious resource with extraordinary potential. About 99% of the world’s fresh water in liquid form is groundwater, but it only makes for about 30% of the world’s freshwater supply.
Groundwater underpins drinking water supplies and sustains agriculture, industry and recreation, even in arid regions. Groundwater is also vital to surface water ecosystems, helping dilute and assimilate contaminants and mitigating flooding.
Sustainable water, wastewater and ecosystems management, through responsible water policies and coordinated actions of public and private stakeholders, are essential to ensure safe drinking water and sanitation for all (UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 6).
Our specialists understand water policies, water cycles and hydrogeological specificities of the world’s arid regions. We identify suitable sites and extraction systems using remote sensing, geophysical, hydrogeological, geochemical, and exploratory drilling methods. We can carry out projects to recharge aquifers – artificially or naturally – to provide freshwater supply.
Always here for you
We will evaluate your project’s potential and opportunities for optimisation.
Multi-Scale Karstic Reservoir Characterisation
Innovative multi-disciplinary approach (combining bore-hole imagery, core data, 3D seismic and field production) have been applied to better characterize and represent karstic features.
Natural Gas and Oil
We guide our clients to harvest natural resources efficiently, sustainably, and ethically. We help maintain the energy supply while supporting the energy transition.
Shallow to Deep Geothermal Energy
Using the natural thermal energy of the earth to heat, cool and produce electricity for our homes and cities.
Seasonal energy storage is essential for the energy transition. Our expertise allows us to identify and characterise suitable sites.
Carbon Capture and Storage
Ensuring the efficient and safe storage of CO2 produced by industries throughout Switzerland and the world. We are pioneers in this area.
We supervise exploration campaigns to search for the mineral deposits needed for the energy transition.
