An intelligent solution for waterway management

Waterway management is entering a new era and Mopthycs is leading the way. It’s the end of decentralised decision-making that undermines navigability, environmental safety and efficient energy use. And the start of a new intelligent system that optimises the management of an entire waterway network.

Built by IMDC, a subsidiary of Tractebel, Mopthycs works by enhancing the coherence of river control, considering optimal regulation parameters while easing operation and maintenance activities. All with a web-based platform that’s easy to integrate with your existing IT infrastructure.


Get instant access to waterway data, updated in real-time, on a dashboard built for smart management around the clock for any kind of waterway network.


Enhance the navigability, environmental safety and energy use of waterways with the powerful network effects that Mopthycs generates.


Mopthycs is built on Tractebel’s world-class expertise with waterway engineering and software development in partnership with IMDC and Sumaqua.
