DHI PlumeCast: Empower your dredging operations to safeguard ecosystems
Dredging-related sediment spills can pose a significant threat to sensitive species and natural habitats. As a responsible dredging operator, ensuring regulatory compliance and minimising ecological risks are paramount.
How we can help
With DHI PlumeCast, you gain an advanced cloud-based solution that enables easy prediction of sediment spills and their dispersion through an intuitive web interface. By harnessing MIKE Powered by DHI's hydrodynamic, sediment and ecological models, coupled with real-time field monitoring and earth observation data, DHI PlumeCast effectively translates simulation results into actionable insights. The best part? DHI PlumeCast requires no specialised modelling expertise! This means that anyone involved in dredging operations can now assess potential environmental impacts, expedite approvals for new dredging projects and further safeguard delicate ecosystems.
Stay ahead of potential impacts sooner than with traditional software
Streamline the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) approval process with DHI PlumeCast's ability to quickly screen predicted sediment spills and evaluate the potential impacts on sensitive species and habitats.
Proactively manage spills during dredging operations
Optimise dredging plans by forecasting spill plumes for upcoming days to guide mitigation strategies during operations.
Effectively use the application without modelling expertise
Enhance dredging oversight, simplify compliance and improve risk management with DHI PlumeCast's user-friendly interface, accessible to all without the need for a modelling expert.
Have confidence in the accuracy of your results
Ensure accurate, reliable results by integrating live field monitoring and earth observation data with MIKE Powered by DHI's proven technology and cloud-optimised computational engines.
