Why choose IDBD?

01. For his technical expertise and his experience in irrigation

The IDBD company is led by Elie Desrues. Returning from his training in irrigation techniques learned in the United States in the 1970s, he pioneered precision automatic irrigation systems by promoting the technique of valve-in-head sprinklers associated with individual head-control, and the first computerized control systems installed in France. He was also a pioneer in promoting electro-hydraulic regulation systems for large pumping stations and further the energy-saving on-demand variable speed pumps adapted to the varying consumption profiles in irrigation.

Responsible for several decades of the supervision of the integrated design office of the company Sadimato, he participated in the design of irrigation systems on golf courses, racetracks, parks and landscaped cemeteries.

Elie Desrues is an expert recognized by European authorities. Appointed by the CEN (European Committee for Standardization) coordinator of the Technical Committee CEN / TC334 "Irrigation Technics", he co-wrote the European standard NF EN 12484-1 / 5 "Automatic turf irrigation systems". He is also co-author of the professional rules of the SYNAA (National Syndicate of Automatic Irrigation), of the encyclopedia and of the technical specifications of the SFG (Société Française des Gazons).
