Irrigation Engineering

In Turkey and Europe , GENTEK is one of the largest water resources, irrigation, and drainage consultants. GENTEK's national and international experience in irrigation and water resources development includes projects in nearly every continent of the world. Specific international experience includes large irrigation and drainage development projects in Turkey and Middle east of 84,000 and 28,000 hectares respectively.

The heart of any irrigation system is its pumping system. Proper planning and design of a state-of-the art irrigation pump station is crucial to the outcome of the entire irrigation project. GENTEK professionals are well versed in the engineering requirements of pump systems.

Irrigation Water Management

Sharp population growth trends dictate the necessity of conserving natural resources. As non-agricultural uses of water increase their demand for a share of the limited fresh water supplies, it is important for irrigated agriculture to improve efficiency of use and conserve its share of the available water.


Gentek has extensive experience in the development of conceptual, preliminary, and final detailed designs. For the Hydraulic State Agency, we have prepared design analysis reports, design memorandums, feature design memorandums, as well as detailed design, plans, and specifications. This experience includes new design, as well as demolition, remediation, rehabilitation, and repair projects.

GENTEK's irrigation experts understand the important interrelationships that exist between district- and farm level irrigation operations that influence water use efficiency. They also understand the economic, environmental, institutional, and cultural factors affecting water availability and use. GENTEK irrigation engineers understand the influence of soil salinity on crop production and the importance of good irrigation management. In addition, GENTEK staff offer specialized experience in the development and evaluation of water conservation improvements such as

* Irrigation Canal Lining
