Our areas of expertise
Our expertise spans all water environments –
from rivers and reservoirs, to oceans and coastlines, to cities and factories.
We have a 50-year track record in developing and implementing solutions that meet real-life challenges in water environments worldwide.
So whether you need to save water, share it fairly, improve its quality, quantify its impact or manage its flow, we can help.

Proper coastal resilience planning can help improve the long-term sustainability of coastal communities.
MIKE Powered by DHI’s coastal resilience technology offers the greatest ability to not only understand vulnerabilities including storm surge risks and the capacity of existing storm water infrastructure but develop real solutions to protect against flood danger.
According to The Global Risks Report 2019, published by the World Economic Forum, the most frequently cited risk interconnection was the pairing of ‘failure of climate-change mitigation and adaptation’ and ‘extreme weather events.’
Gather data on Metocean conditions
Map the coastline
Use satellite derived bathymetry to build a picture of the historical evolution of the coastline
Reveal hydrodynamic and morphological change
Examine risks and pinpoint the most vulnerable areas
Assess the viability of engineered and nature-based design solutions that can preserve the integrity of natural buffering systems
Make robust flood warning accounting for tides, storm surge and wind waves
Produce high fidelity flood maps to aid in emergency response
Assess the probability of contracting illness from water borne diseases
Optimise flood control defenses on the fly
Operate urban infrastructure to protect from saltwater intrusion
Auto-calibrate water levels against live satellite imagery to predict the scale of potential flooding

Learn how MIKE 21 HD was used to model past, present and future storm surges in the Limfjord estuary to gain a better understanding of
how changing conditions can affect flood impact.
Watch a demo of how MIKE 3 Wave FM was presented as a solution to design better sea defences through the simulation of flooding behind sea walls and an engineered shingle beach.
