Risk analysis of a portfolio of 27 dams in the River Duero Basin (Spain)

iPresas in collaboration with OFITECO, developed, in the period 2011-2012, the quantitative risk analyses and evaluation of a portfolio of 27 dams of the Duero River Basin Authority (Spain), along with a tool for risk-informed dam safety management at portfolio scale.

The portfolio of dams included different typologies and ages, with a wide variety of dam heights, purposes, topographical and geotechnical features, safety issues, hydrologic loads and so forth.

This work represents the largest portfolio of dams analyzed in Spain from a risk-informed approach, including quantitative risk analysis and the prioritization of risk reduction measures for 27 dams.
