Our company

Origin of the company

The company 3D Eau ingénierie is a startup issued from the ICube Laboratory and research centre. ICube brings together researchers from l’Ecole Nationale du Génie de l’Eau et de l’Environnement de Strasbourg (ENGEES), l’Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Strasbourg (INSA Strasbourg), le Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and the University of Strasbourg.

The project is a result of the willingness of three people: 
  • Jonathan Wertel (ENGEES engineer, doctor of the University of Strasbourg)
  • José Vazquez (INSA engineer, ENGEES professor, doctor of the University of Strasbourg)
  • Matthieu Dufresne (ENGEES engineer, ENGEES lecturer, doctor of the University of Strasbourg).

The objective of the startup is to implement, in the engineering sector, the knowledge acquired within the ICube Laboratory on 3D modeling with regards to hydraulic infrastructure such as sewer overflows, intersection chambers, deep shafts...

Our technology

Our technology is a software solution using 3D numerical fluid mechanics adapted to the field of water and the environment (wastewater, stormwater, drinking water, fluvial…). This technology has been developed within the ICube Laboratory (CNRS). A contract has been elaborated between ICube and 3D Eau to allow us to use this technology.

Our activities

Our activities revolve around the design, the diagnosis and the instrumentation of hydraulic infrastructure: 

  • Design of key hydraulic infrastructure (examples: verification of the supply capacity of a retention tank acting as a flood protection, wastewater, drinking water, industrial...)
  • Diagnostic of infrastructure with a complex hydraulic operation system (example: combined sewer overflows influenced by downstream levels of the receiving environment)
  • Instrumentation of non standardised measuring sites [ISO 4359, ISO 4360, ISO 6416…] (example: reliability of a Venturi flume such as Khafagi).

Our philosophy

Our philosophy can be defined through the following:

  • Our independence, guaranteeing an absolute objectivity to our clients : no external financial support (particularly no injection into the capital of the company), no exclusive contracts or agreement
  • Our permanent willingness to guarantee innovation through a very strong link with the ICube Laboratory (our three associates are from the Laboratory and two of them work conjunctly for the company and the Laboratory).
