The power behind your best MIKE models

Creating and effectively presenting the results from a water model can be complicated. Many of our software platforms are backed by MIKE Zero, DHI's fully integrated graphical user interface designed to make modelling easier. Packed with informative, intuitive and helpful features, MIKE Zero helps you get more out of your MIKE models in less time .
