Digital twin technology has the potential to improve efficiency and sustainability, and reduce risk, in all kinds of systems and processes. Machinery, buildings, workflows, even entire cities can be mapped, monitored and replicated in digital form.

But doing this accurately requires specialist knowledge about the asset, processes or system being twinned – as well as digital technology expertise in predictive simulations, data analytics, and AI. You also need to know how to take the users of these solutions along in the adaptation of these new technologies.

At Royal HaskoningDHV, we partner with organisations around the world to build digital twins of key assets and business processes. With 140 years of engineering experience, we use our in-depth understanding the physical environment to create value out of data in the digital space.

We can help you identify use cases and choose the right technologies to find more value from your assets. Alongside our growing global network of partners, we’re creating standardized out-of-the-box solutions as well as bespoke, customer-led services to deliver maximum value to our clients.

Explore our capabilities


Although the potential of digital twins is clear, creating concrete value can be more challenging. That’s why our digital consultancy services are there to support you from the outset of your digital twin journey.

We can develop a roadmap for your organisation, find specific use cases that create value, and make sure related topics around security, privacy, data governance and user adaptation are designed in to the process. 

We already deliver these services for clients in the maritime, aviation, industry, health care and water sectors – often combined with our specialised capabilities highlighted below.

Aquasuite® – AI-powered water infrastructure

Aquasuite’s virtual operator and semi-autonomous technology help organisations to manage flows of drinking water and wastewater. It acts as both analyst and autopilot, improving the effectiveness of existing assets, networks and systems. The technology is proven in the Netherlands, where Aquasuite manages 80% of the drinking water supply – reducing leakage to less than 6%.
