Svašek Hydraulics develops European Continental Shelf ModelMay 2012
The European Continental Shelf Model, or ECSM in short, is developed by Svašek Hydraulics and provides high quality tidal data for the North Sea, the British Channel and neighbouring shallow parts of the Atlantic using numerical flow simulation software FINEL2D.
The ECSM can be utilised for a whole range of engineering purposes. Think for example of water level and current forecasts for ship routing, off-shore construction activities or extreme sea level analysis.

Svašek Hydraulics employees win at unique PUMA BinnenmeerloopApril 2012
On April 18th, a unique run has been organised at Maasvlakte 2 (the expansion of the port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands) for the companies part of PUMA. Early April, the so-called compartment dam has been closed. This dam closes off the Prinses Alexiahaven, in order to temporarily decrease the water surface area of Maasvlakte 2, to simplify the closure of gap in the seawall in July. In October 2012, the compartment dam will be removed.
The run took place on a 7 km track around the entire Prinses Alexiahaven, thereby crossing the temporarily compartment dam, and on a 3.5 km track along part of the Prinses Alexiahaven. Svašek Hydraulics was represented by four employees on the 7 km run, and gained the first place, and besides the first women to cross the finish. On the 3.5 km run, Svašek Hydraulics was represented by one employee, who gained the second place.
Since 2006 Svašek Hydraulics is part of the PUMA and is involved in the design process and construction aspects of Maasvlakte 2.
