Protecting Elblag city from floods

The city of Elblag is located in north-Eastern Poland, and is situated in the region of unfavourable hydrological conditions. It is constantly threatened by floods caused by heavy rainfall and backflow from the Vistula Lagoon located near it. To reduce potential losses caused by massive flood events, Elblag city authorities needed to implement a flood forecasting system to enable early warning for the citizens of Elblag. Using MIKE Powered by DHI software, we developed a Local Monitoring and Flood Response Support System (LMFRS) to help them manage flood risks within the city.

Ensuring dry mines in the Copperbelt
The Central African Copperbelt is the largest copper-cobalt resource in the world. Ore is extracted in dozens of mines spread across Zambia and southern Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo). Many of these mines have significant water challenges due to the high rainfall and the porous nature of the host ore bodies. DHI has been working in DR Congo for several years developing hydrology and dewatering models to support mine operations in this challenging part of the world.


Marine modelling for an onshore liquefied natural gas terminal in Gujarat, India
HPCL Shapoorji Energy Limited (HSEL) intends to construct an onshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) import and regasification terminal in Chhara, a village in Gujarat, India. HSEL has appointed Engineers India Limited ad consultant to prepare Front End Engineering Design (FEED) packages to be used as design basis. To support EIL in their preparation of FEED, HSEL engaged DHI to carry out a marine modelling study for the proposed terminal. Using our MIKE 21 software, we were able to provide a modelling solutions to ascertain the viability of the location for the construction of the gas terminal.


National flood mapping for Slovakia
Improvements to river channels carried out for flood mitigation will generally have some effect on transport of the gravel bedload. Any resulting changes in bed levels can in turn affect flood levels, possibly diminishing the effect of the channel improvements over time. The Sediment Transport (ST) module in MIKE 11 is able to estimate these effects.

New project ‘Water Smart Cities’ provides water utilities and municipalities with better tools for climate change adaptation
The 'Water Smart Cities' project, a collaboration between DHI, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Krüger, Ramboll, the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) and the four largest water companies in Denmark, aims to develop and test intelligent software technologies to ensure optimal planning for future heavy rain and flood events that occur in the cities.
