Canadians adopt NZ Technology

Climate change mitigation firm HYDRA Software has just signed a technology sharing deal with leading Canadian hydro optimization specialists Synexus Global. Synexus Global, a division of Hatch Ltd., has selected the AULOS integrated set of hydraulic modeling facilities to be integrated in Synexus Global’s comprehensive Vista DSS™ suite of models to provide fast, robust and detailed water routing computation in real time or simulation modes.

Announcing this in Hamilton, HYDRA CEO Dr Alastair Barnett (pictured) said that the locally developed AULOS water movement software had already been recognised in New Zealand by winning the 1998 Fulton Downer Gold Medal for the Te Papa tsunami protection design, and the Information Technology and Networks Category of the 2002 IPENZ Technical Awards for hydropower analysis.

“AULOS technology advances have also begun to be recognised in Europe, particularly Switzerland where the mountainous geography has similarities to New Zealand, and this new Synexus deal is welcome recognition that we can cut it in North America as well.”

HYDRA Software Ltd is a Hamilton based software company
