The services are mainly directed to companies which are active in the water/waste water sector and the renewable energy sector.


Ms. Dr. Heike Burghard has been rewarded the doctor’s degree in Natural Sciences (biology) and has extensive experience in the environmental sector. The thesis of doctorate treated the topic of sustainable settlement development using the example of a rural municipality on Gran Canary island taking into account the touristy activities. Furthermore she represented a German supplier for de-central waste water treatment plants in Spain. After her return to Germany she worked for many years in a well established engineering company with main focus on water and waste water projects. There she was acquiring extensive experience in the international water and waste water sector for almost 10 years. As Director of the international business development she was responsible for the acquisition in international markets, but at the same time was involved actively in the development and implementation of projects. Important EU-financed projects like the technical assistance in water and waste water projects in Sibiu (Romania) or Karlovac (Croatia) were realised in this period. 
Several studies were drawn up under her responsibility, such as the “Feasibility Study for the construction of components and plants for the collection and treatment of waste water for the coastal areas of the island Krk”, a candidate project for Cohesion Fund, or “Feasibility study with technical variant solutions and economic considerations for the waste water project of the city of Sisak”.
Furthermore several delegation travels of potential clients and a water conference in Istanbul were organised successfully by her.
She maintains contacts to international operating companies in the consulting, the supply and construction business. A multitude of lectures and seminars, as well as the participation at workshops for successful project application and implementation for World Bank, EBRD, UN and KfW completes her portfolio.
Dr. Burghard is member of the association “German Water Partnership”, where she is head of the country section Croatia. In this property she developed a National Training and Competence Centre (TCC) for the Croatian water sector. The pilot phase of TCC was supported bei BMU through the State Agency UBA.
