Our world is water. So whether you need to save water, share it fairly, improve its quality, quantify its impact or manage its flow, we can help. Our knowledge, combined with our team’s expertise and the power of our technology, holds the key to unlocking the right solution.

DHI AUstralia

DHI have been working in Australia since the early 1990’s and established an incorporated company in Australia in 2000, this being one of the first subsidiaries within the DHI Group. 

Two offices were initially established in Sydney and on the Gold Coast to service a number of key clients in the water utilities and local government sectors. In 2007 we expanded into the oil, gas and mining sectors and opened offices in Perth and in Brisbane.

DHI Australia has an enviable reputation for delivering specialist engineering and environmental consulting services and software within the water industry in Australia. We contribute to water management in the mining and CSG sectors, support environmental impact assessments for offshore and inshore oil and gas facilities, resource-to-market developments like ports and undersea pipelines including dredging and reclamation works, and set industry standards in flood management and water resources assessments. The MIKE by DHI water modelling software is recognised as the industry standard for river flooding, coastal modelling and groundwater modelling. Australia is the DHI Group’s third largest software market globally. Every year we have hundreds of water professionals participate in our training and knowledge sharing activities through THE ACADEMY by DHI in Australia.

In 2010 DHI won a significant contract (CARM: Computer Aided River Management ) with State Water Corporation in New South Wales to develop a Decision Support System (DSS) that supports river operations in the Murrumbidgee River system. The river supplies major irrigation schemes as well as internationally important wetlands areas and the system will improve the effectiveness of operations to the benefit of both the environment and the local economies. The project has been recognised at a national level, collecting both the 2013 Engineers Australia Environmental Engineering Excellence Award and the 2013 Australian Water Association Award for Infrastructure Innovation.

The Australian water market is recognised globally for its thought leadership and strong governance within the water and environment space. The market is an early adopter and generator of water technologies making it important for DHI to remain at the global cutting edge of technology development. Our consolidated presence in Australia helps to ensure that the DHI can retain and expand our position at the high technology end of the water market - which is exactly where we want to be!

WEBINAR: OVERVIEW OF GROUNDWATER MODELLING SOLUTIONS FOR MINING APPLICATIONS USING FEFLOW During this free 45-minute webinar, you'll be introduced to the key features of FEFLOW, a comprehensive software package which allows you to overcome the most challenging mining and groundwater related concerns. The webinar will focus on the new 3D unstructured-mesh that can be used to implement a straightforward and detailed mining plan. Moreover, you'll learn how to accurately estimate dewatering volumes and pore pressure distributions. There will be ample time for questions and answers. Time:15.00-15.45 UTC. Online Register
21 Apr
1 day
Webinar: Hybrid approach to modelling long-term shoreline evolution using MIKE 21 FM An increasing number of conflicts in coastal areas and unintended consequences on shoreline morphology are caused by extensive development of industry, infrastructure and tourism related projects in coastal areas - while, at the same time, climate change poses a challenge at many locations. During this free 1 hour webinar you will learn how MIKE 21 will help you make the right management decisions as a coastal planner. 17:00UTC (1:00 PM EST) Online Register
28 Apr
1 day
Webinar: The vast possibilities of Agent-Based Modelling Join this free 45-minute webinar, where you can learn why ABM Lab is the tool of choice for agent-based modelling. We will demonstrate the main benefits of the ABM Lab module and highlight the possibilities of agent-based models while demonstrating how ABM Lab can facilitate the development of new ABMs. Time: 07:00-08:00 UTC. Online Register
5 May
1 day
Webinar: How can digital tools support future marine EIAs? Join this 1-hour webinar which will present DHI outlook on future easy-to-use online tools for marine EIAs (Environmental Impact Assessments), show you examples and discuss how digitalization can be used to easier implement new science for assessing or screening for environmental impacts. Fee: Free of charge, Time: 07:00-08:00 UTC. Online Register
7 May
1 day
Webinar: Quantifying effects on catchment load reductions of water quality In this webinar the use of coupled land based contaminant generation and marine receiving environment models are presented. Long term model simulations were undertaken to define the Microbiological Assessment Category at key sites within the Porirua Harbour and how this may change under different future land use scenarios. The outcomes of the modelling have been used to develop a programme of work for the future management of the Porirua Harbour catchment. Time (NZT): Thursday, 7 May 2020, 12:00 pm Online Register

1 day
Webinar: Introduction to meshes flexibility in FELOW: layered, partially unstructured or fully unstructured meshes During this free 45 minute webinar including a Q&A session, we will introduce you to how FEFLOW is supported by a sophisticated mesh generation algorithm and interfaces to a number of geological modelling frameworks. Groundwater models in demanding geological settings can now be set up more easily than ever before. The new meshing options are especially helpful for the precise mapping of inclined boreholes, inclined faults or any underground structures 18:00 UTC (2:00 pm EST) Online Register

1 day
Webinar: Understanding effects of land use change on the marine receiving environment In this webinar the use of fully coupled wave, hydrodynamic and sediment transport models are presented. The marine models use flow and sediment load estimates from catchment models to provide an understanding of the relative role of existing seabed sediments and catchment derived sediments. The suite of models are then used to quantify the effects of potential land use change within the catchments on deposition rates and suspended sediment concentrations. Time (NZT): Wednesday, 13 May 2020, 12:00 pm Online Register

1 day
Webinar: Managing the Impacts of underwater noise Join this free 45-minute webinar for an introduction to a very ‘hot’ environmental topic - managing the impacts of underwater noise. Gain insight as to why the effects of underwater noise have become such an important environmental issue. We will share the fundamentals of a “risk-based approach” which is believed to be the most proactive way to address such noise impacts. Time: 07:00-08:00 UTC. Online Register
21 May

Webinar: Marine connectivity modelling In this webinar an overview of developing an understanding of the linkages between sub-catchments and sub-estuaries in terms of both sediment deposition and pathogens are discussed. This marine connectivity matrix approach allows the effects of targeted reductions in sub-catchment loads to be quantified in terms of the marine receiving environment and provides valuable input into the integrated management of land use and coastal waters.
