The Asia 2018 takes place from 13 to 15 March in Danang, Vietnam

On 13 to 15 March, the International Journal on Hydropower and Dams will organise the Seventh International Conference and Exhibition on Water Resources and Renewable Energy Development in Asia. The event is called Asia 2018 and will take place in Danang, Vietnam. The conference will provide a platform for international experts from around 50 countries to focus on issues of direct relevance to Asia. Tractebel, together with its subsidiary Lahmeyer International, will participate in the event with conference booth no. 009. There, visitors can meet with the companies’ representatives to discuss solutions on hydro power and water management and to get information about various reference projects in Asia. On one of those projects, Dr. Jens Mödinger, Lahmeyer project manager in the department hydropower planning, will present his paper with the title “Development of a system operation model for the Mahaweli river basin, Sri Lanka”. He will hold the presentation within the panel “Flood protection and hydrology”, which will take place on Tuesday, 13 March.

Water Security for Sri Lanka

The paper is based on Lahmeyer’s involvement in the Sri Lankan Mahaweli Water Security Investment Program (MWSIP), which is the final stage of the Mahaweli Development Plan – Sri Lanka’s largest multipurpose national development program. The MWSIP aims to enhance the country’s water security by transferring water from the Mahaweli River Basin to dryer parts of Sri Lanka. Within the project, Lahmeyer is developing a modelling tool for operating the Mahaweli System which will be an important contributor to sound water management by the Mahaweli Authority of Sri Lanka and the national Irrigation Department. Interested visitors can learn more about this project by attending Dr. Mödinger’s presentation.
