NEVASCO is an open cooperation between Dutch companies to provide sustainable geo-information services on Energy, Agro & Food, Urban Deltas and Civil & Military Security. NEVASCO is a platform that links geo-information providers to clients in the four selected markets. We are a trading and added value organisation that integrates, enhances, promotes and sells geo-information services and is fostering standardization and certification of earth observation services. NEVASCO’s turnkey solutions integrate earth observation services with the geo-information services and services of non geo-companies in the different commercial sectors.
We operate in 4 market segments
The energy market is continuously growing and changing. Over the last years the oil and gas price have swung dramatically and the development of new fields has therefore been delayed or sometimes cancelled. On the longer term the oil price will go up again and new fields in harsh environments will be developed further. Outside Europe Kazakhstan, areas around Baku in Azerbaijan, Middle East, cold regions (Arctic) and the Far East are important areas.
In Europe there is a tendency to move to larger parcels, to reduce the use of fertilisers and pesticides and to limit water use for irrigation. Remote sensing services integrated with manufacturers in this sector will open business opportunities on a day-to-day basis. Outside Europe there is a trend to increase small farmers production. Hereto, services will be integrated with existing manufacturers. Due to climate change, extreme events will increase in magnitude and frequency, urging for new and challenging mitigation programs. Hereto, there is a need to get a better understanding of the natural water system and information on water availability (scarcity), land use and irrigation, but also on issues related to extreme rainfall. NEVASCO focuses on supporting stake- holders in these sector by providing information on a daily basis.
In South-East Asia, as elsewhere around the world (e.g. in Africa, Europe, also the Netherlands) major issues exist related to large cities, like air quality, water defence, habitability, food and other supply chains, traffic, recreation and tourism, heat islands, sewerage and rainfall. With increasing population growth in delta cities, such problems grow too. Delta cities are for their development and sustainability becoming more and more dependent on Smart and Big Data management. In the Netherlands consortia have been established through for example the water sector, to export Dutch expertise. NE- VASCO has implemented a strategy to export activities with the Dutch water sector.
Civil security and Defence are clearly relevant topics in the institutional and public domain in the Netherlands. In these fields, information need for environmental assessments and other activities is growing offering many opportunities for services based on satellite data. This can also be seen from the establishment of organizations like The Hague Security Delta (HSD) and The Hague Center for Strategic Studies (HCSS). Such organizations provide opportunities for innovative business in the field of geo-information and remote sensing services. NEVASCO will focus on the Netherlands and provide services in cooperation with HSD and HCSS.
