Measure type: Redundancy


With the help of redundancies, risks caused by the possibility of failing infrastructure, treatment equipment etc. shall be compensated. Redundant infrastructures (at least partially) keep on working in the desired manner if one of the redundantly constructed parts fails. Examples could be the construction of a second pipeline to ensure water supply if one of the pipelines is destroyed, mirrored (double) process control systems, additional pumping wells or additional treatment plants.
