VIRTUAL RIVER for retention basins on the Emscher 1500 999 GR-Consult

After DHI had accompanied the conception and design of the retention basins in the Mengede and Ellinghausen network for years, GR-Consult took over the models in a system with VIRTUAL RIVER.

By embedding the models created with MIKE1D in VIRTUAL RIVER, a test system is available with which the real control modules can be tested and approved for any hydrological-hydraulic conditions.

During tests and acceptance, the fully programmed controls (Siemens S7) can communicate with VIRTUAL RIVER via OPC-UA. VIRTUAL RIVER provides all the data that is also available for the real retention basin.
