Together with municipal partners, IKT Nederland carries out research projects such as this one in Almere: in a test track along a row of trees, 24 passive root protection measures have been installed.

IKT founded a new branch in the Dutch city of Arnhem in 2013. “IKT Nederland” is now the first point of contact with IKT for Dutch and Belgian network operators, engineering consultancies and contractors on all matters concerning sewer systems.
