HydraTek was founded in the late 1980s in order to provide specialty consulting engineering services for problems involving water hammer in pipe systems. HydraTek has since completed over 450 hydraulic and transient related projects in a diverse range of pipe systems such as water distribution networks, water transmission systems, stormwater conveyance, slurry/tailings distribution, sanitary conveyance and forcemains, airport jet fuel supply networks, and hydroelectric installations.
In recent years, the volume of engagements, as well as the global adoption of hydraulic transient analysis, hydraulic modelling, and specialized field investigations have increased and HydraTek has diversified its services and experience to the point where it now offers comprehensive and high quality hydraulic modelling, analysis, training, investigation, field, and design services for a variety of complex hydraulic systems.
Our people generally hold Masters- or Doctorate-level advanced degrees in various engineering or scientific disciplines and we maintain a focus on consulting activities which are generally not hosted by traditional firms, many of whom we partner with on a project-by-project basis.
This approach has the added advantage of maintaining independence and the resultant ability to provide an unbiased service which is particularly well suited to peer review engagements and forensic investigations.
