WHAT’S 3D EAU?
3D EAU, an innovative company that implements the know-how developed by the fluid mechanics laboratory ENGEES-ICUBE.
Since 2014, 3D EAU has been assisting you in the design, diagnosis and instrumentation of complex hydraulic sites; waste water management works in general and stormwater spillways in particular, by adapting 3D hydraulic modelling (initially dedicated to aeronautics) to the field of water and the environment. It is an innovative study methodology that allows a precise understanding and visualisation of the fluid inside hydraulic structures.
In 2020, 3D EAU joins forces with Hydrass; which, for 30 years, has been developing, manufacturing and supplying equipment of simple and robust design to optimise the operation of sewerage networks (reduction of spillages) and to facilitate the intervention of operating staff in the field (dredging, retention of floating materials, etc.). It is a solution of operational products designed and manufactured in our workshops.

THE FIRST STEPS
3DEAU Engineering is a startup based on the ICube laboratory (ENGEES, INSA of Strasbourg, CNRS and University of Strasbourg).
The project was launched on the initiative of three people:
Jonathan Wertel (engineer, PhD from the University of Strasbourg)
José Vazquez (Professor, INSA engineer, PhD from the University)
Matthieu Dufresne (University Lecturer, engineer, PhD from the University).
The startup’s objective is to leverage—in the area of engineering—the 3D modelling expertise developed by the laboratory, to study hydraulic structures such as combined sewer overflows, junction chambers, drop shafts, etc.
Our clients are secure in the knowledge that we are totally objective, because we’re independent: there’s no external financing (specifically no acquisition of a holding in the capital of the company) and no exclusive contract.
We have a constant drive for innovation, thanks to our very strong ties with the laboratory: all three partners are from the laboratory, and one partner works both at the company and at the laboratory.
Respect for the environment is central to our approach, both in terms of the services we offer—reducing the discharge of pollutants to rivers, optimising treatments, etc.—and in how our services are delivered: prioritising public transport and making sustainable, responsible purchases.
