Quickly assess wave conditions with easy access to high-resolution, global wave data
MIKE Metocean Simulator

MIKE Metocean Simulator is a cloud-based modelling tool that empowers offshore energy and marine infrastructure professionals to quickly assess nearshore and offshore wave conditions - regardless of expertise. Unlock a new era of speed, ease, and flexibility with MIKE Metocean Simulator, where you can:

  • Rely on assisted meshing, advanced statistical methods, and cloud computing to run faster simulations than traditional modelling
  • Enhance RFP responsiveness and boost profitability by enabling non-specialists to simulate wave heights in just a few hours
  • Save time processing data through the integration of select global datasets from DHI's Metocean On-Demand (MOOD) Portal
  • Leverage the cloud to cut hardware costs and elevate data quality in early project phases
  • Make informed, data-driven decisions right away and seamlessly navigate from basic to advanced modelling using the intuitive interface

Create high quality 2D meshes in record time while reducing errors

MIKE Mesh Builder is a cloud application that simplifies the mesh creation process while reducing errors. Key features include:

  • Smart control of mesh operations, including full flexibility to control variable mesh density
  • A multi-user workspace to support users working in parallel to modify, document and review the mesh
  • A mesh generation process centered on mesh quality driven by interactive feedback
  • Mesh scenarios tied back to the original data and embedded in a project framework
  • Significant time savings in terms of data management and mesh generation allowing you to respond quickly to changing project needs
For more information, please visit the Mesh Builder website or view the help documentation.

Concurrent simulations (MIKE 21 Spectral Waves)




Price per month for an annual subscription


Price per month for a monthly subscription**

* A single (1) Concurrent User Subscription will permit one user of MIKE Zero at any time. There is no limit to the number of named users you may specify.

** Two month minimum required. The price of monthly Subscription follows the normal Subscription rules: 2 months minimum initially and 1 month extension is available. Prices are calculated as 1 month = 1/8 of annual price, 2 months = 2/9 of annual price and 3 months (and more) = 3/10 of annual price.

~ All annual subscriptions come with a free Company Subscription of MIKE Cloud with one user of Mesh Builder and 1 TB of Cloud storage.

# First short-term subscription (2-11 months) for each company comes with an introductory offer of 100 Cloud Execution Credits. Additional Cloud Execution Credits can be purchased in bundles of 250, 500, or 1000.

Need more than a subscription package?

If you’re looking for a specific combination of modules, our Perpetual Licenses (Professional and University) are available for you.

At the local and global levels we offer an umbrella of activities to support our users in the understanding and application of our software and technologies: training courses, webinars, chats, user group meetings, expert seminars and round-tables.

Questions / Answers

A: Absolutely! The new subscription packages replace short term module rentals, so if you need a MIKE Desktop product for only a short time, subscription is the way to go. Get in touch with one of our representatives via the form below to find a package that best suits your needs.
A: The minimum period of subscription for API packages is 12 months. All other packages are also available for 12 months, except the 1 Concurrent User variants which are also available as a monthly subscription, with a 2-month minimum period. The monthly subscription is a great way to try out the MIKE applications before deciding to commit for longer.
A: Yes, the monthly subscription cost varies based on the length of the Subscription. For periods 3-11 months the cost is 20% more than the equivalent monthly rate of an annual subscription. For 2 months (minimum initial period) the cost is 33% more than the equivalent monthly rate of an annual subscription. For 1 month (extensions only) the cost is 50% more than the equivalent monthly rate of an annual subscription. A monthly subscription can be upgraded to an annual subscription at any time to take advantage of the cheaper monthly rate. 
A: A monthly subscription is initially invoiced at the start of the contract for the full 2-month minimum period, after which invoices will be issued monthly. An annual subscription is initially invoiced for the full 1-year period in advance.
A: Subscriptions will be invoiced automatically 2 weeks prior to the end of the subscription period, unless DHI receives a written request for termination.
A: Yes, all subscriptions come with DHI’s renowned software support for the period of the subscription.
A: The 2 Concurrent User subscription (and 5, 10 & 25 concurrent users) will unlock unlimited simulations for all the engines included in the subscription (enabling the use of cloud computing resources). This option adds significant value and is a game changer to your project or study delivery deadlines.  
A: Unless specifically referenced (i.e. marine subscriptions which have a choice of one or two add-on modules), adding modules to a subscription is not permitted. Extended functionality can be achieved by combining two or more subscription packages (for example: Flooding + Hydrology & Hydraulics to get advanced structure operations in rivers). We know that not all integrated simulation scenarios are covered by the subscription packages, so if you need a very specific combination of modules, contact your local DHI Office for perpetual license pricing.
A: No, a 1 Concurrent User subscription of the Flooding package allows 1 user of the MIKE Zero GUI (for building 2D Overland and 1D River models) and 1 user of the MIKE URBAN+ ArcGIS GUI, at the same time. That’s great value and really flexible. Same applies for the Groundwater subscription package (1 user of FEFLOW and 1 user of MIKE Zero, at the same time).
A: Some modules have pre-requisite requirements (like process modules requiring HD), so where there is only one choice (Ports & Maritime, Coastal Engineering and Environmental Engineering), available choices are reduced. But remember, when you choose a MIKE 3 module, the corresponding MIKE 21 module comes with it.
A: Bonus modules are modules that DHI no longer sells as perpetual licenses. The only way to access these modules now is via subscription and as part of valid SMA (annual maintenance) of other Professional (perpetual) licenses.
A: No, chart data can be purchased as an add-on to Marine subscriptions that include MIKE C-MAP. Contact your local DHI Office if you want to know more about MIKE C-MAP and/or C-Map chart data.
A: No, perpetual licenses and subscriptions that are both hosted on your companies Internet License Server cannot be combined. Contact your local DHI Office to find out more about DHI’s Internet License Server (powered by Microsoft Azure).
A: Default delivery of a subscription license is DHI’s Internet License Server. API Packages (MIKE1D and DHI EPANET) can be issued as a network license (with dongle), at additional cost (400€ per dongle). Contact your local DHI Office to get a quote in local currency.
