TUFLOW and SCALGO Collaborate to Create a Complete Platform for Flood Analysis

TUFLOW and SCALGO have entered a partnership to combine TUFLOW hydrodynamic flood simulations with the SCALGO Live environment.

TUFLOW and SCALGO Collaborate to Create a Complete Platform for Flood Analysis

The TUFLOW team are very excited to announce a collaboration with SCALGO which will bring together two companies with a similar passion for creating the best possible decision-support for flood mitigation, climate change adaptation and surface water planning.

SCALGO Live, used by over 20,000 engineers, planners, and architects, is a fast-growing state-of-the-art platform for exploring interactions between surface water and terrain, and quickly testing various terrain-based solutions to mitigate floods, restore nature and create blue-green cities. 

TUFLOW is a world leader, with 30 years of experience, in developing advanced 1D/2D/3D simulation software for flooding, urban drainage and more. The TUFLOW software excels in accuracy, speed, and workflow efficiency.

Making Detailed Hydraulic Modelling Easier

The two software tools are already used as complementary approaches by many users in the flood risk management space. SCALGO Live, with its data-centric approach, provides a great starting point for any project and for hydraulic model build prior to more detailed analyses within TUFLOW. As part of the new partnership, the two companies will make a seamless integration between the two tools.

“We are convinced that this partnership will create a lot of value for those undertaking flood risk management”, says Bill Syme, TUFLOW Software Business Lead. “By joining forces, utilising SCALGO Live’s data centric platform with TUFLOW’s advanced hydrodynamic capabilities, we improve everyday life of modellers and planners. We want to help them do more and better in less time to help push the climate adaptation agenda globally”.

By combining the two approaches, hydraulic modellers and planners will experience an even better workflow, faster analyses and assessments, easy and dynamic visualisations of complex surface water challenges, and a unique setup for experimenting with various flood risk mitigation options.

“Our goal is to bring the benefits of hydraulic modelling to a much wider group of practitioners within flood management by making it easier, faster and less expensive to run simulations”, says Morten Revsbæk, CEO at SCALGO. “Within this partnership, we can offer a smooth transition between fast high-level flood assessments and detailed modelling. Planners will be able to explore more solutions to their surface water challenges, at a higher modelling detail-level, and at a significantly lower cost”.
