Bas van Vossen
Deputy head Industrial Hydrodynamics / manager of Intake & Outfall Team / Relationship manager Deltares & South Korea
Bas van Vossen (MSc Applied Physics) is deputy head of the Industrial hydrodynamics group of Deltares and Team Lead of the Intake & Outfall Team. Gradually widening his scope from turbulence and fluid dynamics, he has gained more than 12 years of experience in coastal engineering and industrial flow technology. In recent years the Intake & Outfall Team optimized various of the largest intake and outfall systems for process and cooling water for power and desalination plants. Projects concentrating on CAPEX and OPEX reduction as well as minimizing impacts and permitting processes were carried out for Clients all over the world, including Barakah NPP pumping stations (UAE), Shin Kori NPPs and Shin Hanul NPPs (South Korea).

Project Leader for desk assessments and physical model testing of the submerged intake and outfall system including evaluation, optimization and verification studies of the velocity caps, intake tunnels, intake reservoir, discharge pond, outfall tunnel and diffusers, and including bed protection. The project needed to be integrated with the pump sump physical modelling testing for this project, which was simultaneously carried out at Deltares. The project included various internal and external quality assurance audits and reviews.
