The rise of the digital twin

A digital twin can improve understanding, support decision making or ultimately, change the way a water company operates its assets. Aris Witteborg, who is spearheading Smart Water at Royal HaskoningDHV, explains that digital twin technology provides a risk-free arena for experimentation in addressing the complex and inter-related challenges faced by the water sector.

I’m truly convinced of the value of digital twin technology for the water sector in improving the operational and asset management aspects of businesses.
