KVK Innovation top 100 Award
On September 25th 2019, HydroLogic achieved 3rd place in the KVK Innovation top 100. The Chamber of Commerce announced the top 100 most innovative SMEs in the Netherlands during an exciting final.
Optimal use of water
HydroLogic managed to achieve this top position thanks to the innovation HydroNET Water Control Room. Thanks to this decision support platform, water managers around the world can use dashboards to successfully combat water. Through a smart combination of satellite measurements, water and weather models, the system generates advice and alerts to best manage water. The result is an optimal use of water for all. In this way, vulnerable cities are protected against floods and farmers get the water they need.
The KVK Innovation top 100 is organized annually by the Chamber of Commerce and has grown in recent years into the largest and most important innovation award for SMEs. All innovations are assessed on impact for industry and society, originality, availability and realized turnover and growth potential. The ranking gives a good picture of the innovative strength of SMEs at the moment.
Partners for Water Award
In 2017, HydroNET has won the prestigious Partners for Water Award for co-created water and climate services. The award-winning project started in 2012 during a workshop organised by the Kingfisher project. In that project, Dutch water boards cooperate with catchment management agencies in South Africa. With the support of Partners for Water, a Dutch – South African consortium was formed to co-create climate and water services: HydroLogic, eLeaf, South African Weather Service, KNMI, University of Twente, WineJob and IUCMA.
Water Control Room to take informed decisions
South Africa suffers from water stress. Fresh-water demand is expected to exceed water availability by 2025. To efficiently manage the available water resources and reduce the impacts, water managers need access to historic, current and forecasted water and weather information. The online HydroNET Water Control Room translates terabytes of data from radars, satellites, and other monitoring sources into easy to understand online decision-support dashboards. These dashboards empower water managers to make well-informed and transparent decisions for the sustainable management of their water systems.
“We are very proud of being able to help South Africa in their efforts to solve water problems. Over 25 South African organisations are currently using the HydroNET Water Control Room. The Partners for Water project was the first step to sustainable business in which we will continue to provide services to South African water managers, using innovative ICT.” says Leanne Reichard, leader of the project consortium and Business Director of HydroLogic.

ICT Innovation Award
Multiple award winning software
In 2013 HydroLogic won the most recent National ICT Award for the most innovative service. The prestigious prize was issued by the Dutch ICT industry (Nederland ICT) as a reward for design, operational excellence and the co-creation model for the development of the system, involving a wide range of partners and clients.
HydroNET was launched in 2005. All software components and user interfaces have been developed in close cooperation with water professionals from various organisations. Providing exactly what is needed for strategic and operational water management is what we aim for. For day-to-day practices as well as for crisis management: before, during and after extreme events such as droughts and floods.
Internationally we team-up with local companies who have in-depth knowledge of local water management practices. We jointly provide the HydroNET solutions, applications and services.
