Clients of Alkyon include governments and (port) authorities in the Netherlands and abroad.

Michiel Jaski, member of the Executive Board of ARCADIS about this acquisition: "As a result of the climate change issue, demand for water management services is expected to show a strong increase. The acquisition of Alkyon represents an important strengthening of our position in this international market. The existing strategic cooperation with Alkyon, such as in the project for flood management in New Orleans, becomes more permanent with this step. Alkyon has extensive experience in working abroad and thus strengthens the international water network of ARCADIS."
