Environmental Process Modelling Centre (EPMC) is the repositioned
DHI-NTU Centre at NTU within the NEWRI Ecosystem for the Tranche 3 development.
The joint centre between DHI and NTU was initiated in 2007 to support the
development of the local environmental and water industry in Singapore. It was among the first batch of Centres of
Excellence supported by EWI in this direction.
The first 5 years of Tranche 1 (2007-2012) was led by DHI in terms of
contract administration, and with NTU collaborating in the research activities.
In the subsequent Tranch2 from Oct 2012 to Mar 2016, NTU and DHI executed the
joint centre in an independent manner, while collaborating in research at the
same time. With the continuous development, DHI-NTU Centre at NTU has been repositioned
to EPMC within the NEWRI ecosystem in Tranche 3 from 1 April 2016. EPMC aims to
address the industry needs for future growth, with the advanced development of
environmental modelling and simulations tools for analysis, identification of
potential issues, and offering of improved solutions.
EPMC's RTDA specialisation includes computational hydraulics, surface and coastal water management, industrial water management, process modelling, environmental impact assessment, and development of decision support system tools and technologies.
