(PRWEB UK) 25 January 2013
Ambiental, one of the UK’s leading flood risk mapping and modelling consultancies, has been awarded a place on the prestigious Web Mission 2013. This year’s entrepreneur led trade mission will take 16 innovative, digital, wireless and software technology businesses to India.
Flood risk in India is increasing with over 2 million people being displaced and billions of rupees in damages caused by floods in 2012 alone. In winning a place on this year’s Web Mission, Ambiental hope to introduce their innovative flood modelling software to the Indian market. The company’s core product, Flowroute™, offers a unique approach to flood modelling and digital flood mapping. The software can be used to help insurers better price the risk and for governments to improve planning, cut losses and save lives.
Ambiental’s managing director, Dr. Justin Butler, confirmed the acceptance of their prize. “We at Ambiental are delighted to have been awarded a place on the mission. We are really looking forward to seeing how our flood technology could make a difference to both businesses and ordinary people across India.”
Ambiental’s technology has already been successfully implemented by major insurance companies including Aon Benfield, Willis and Chubb Insurance. Furthermore, the company has also developed a presence on the global stage having produced national scale flood risk databases and mapping for countries including the Czech Republic, Switzerland and Australia.
