The design of the Lüleburgaz wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Turkey during its conception was based on estimations that were not verified. Thus, it could not capture the true efficacies of the plant. Using MIKE Powered by DHI’s WEST for OPTIMISATION software, a dynamic model was developed that was more reliable in simulating the WWTP. This model helped
verify process calculations which provided accurate evaluation of the plant’s process. With the new model, optimisation of the process parameters of the Lüleburgaz WWTP was possible.
The cities of Tát and Tokod in Hungary have, in recent years, been under threat of urban flooding and high groundwater levels. Due to their locations and the effects of climate change, an increased level of storm water results in an increase in ground water level. DHI was engaged by the municipalities of Tát and Tokod to provide advanced knowledge of surface water, groundwater and urban water
systems through a complex integrated mathematical model using the MIKE Powered by DHI’s MIKE SHE and MIKE URBAN software. Simulation based on the models allow a conceptual plan and planning guide to be formulated to prepare for future flood events.
