From more than 20 years PROGEA has been working in Italy and in foreign countries. Some realizations:
Evaluation of flooding scenarios using EFFORTS and PROSIM software
PROSIM software is an extension of EFFORTS real-time system that allows for scenarios evaluation. A project was carried on on the Reno river catchment (Italy). A real time flood forecasting system was implemented using HEC-RAS model and including PROSIM software. During flood events EFFORTS and PROSIM can be used to simulate flood routing and effects of control structures along the river reach; during planning activities they can simulate effects of new structures on flood routing.
Supply of European Flood Forecasting Operational Real Time System (EFFORTS) and multi-Purpose Reservoir Optimal Dynamic Management (PRODAM) software system and related services.
The project aimed at the implementation and customization of a real-time flood forecasting system on the Fuchun River catchment (about 31300 Km2) and at the optimization of water release from the Fuchun dam (drainage area 31300 Km2 total storage capacity 874000000 m3,), upstream of the town of HangZhou, PRC.
Real-time flood forecasting on the Tiber river (Italy)
PROGEA has realized the first real-time flood forecasting system for Tiber river in 1992 using the software EFFORTS. In 2005 the system was widened with the integration of distributed and physically based hydrologic model TOPKAPI. In 2010 the system was revised to include the most recent functionalities of the software EFFORTS and of the models TOPKAPI and PAB, for simulation of rainfall-runoff and flood routing.
Water resource management for the Como lake (Italy)
PROGEA collaborates since 1997 with the Consortium of Adda to the management of water release from the lake of Como. The Decision Support System PRODAM has been revised many times though the years. It is a reference point for technicians of the Consortium. In 2010 PRODAM DSS was integrated with EFFORTS flood forecasting system to allow real-time flood forecasts in the Adda river basin, which is the main tributary of Como lake.
