Weather Forecasting Services
Where operations are sensitive to certain limiting criteria or require a specific weather window, our team of marine meteorologists forecast the local weather and metocean conditions at the project site. We notify our customers when conditions are likely to exceed safe operating parameters or a suitable weather window is anticipated, allowing
them to plan their operations accordingly. Our team of experienced forecasters are familiar with the challenges of operating in the marine environment, both offshore
and near shore. Operating a 24/7 forecasting service with on call duty forecasters ensures that the operator is supported throughout their STS campaigns. Forecasting services that may be provided, include:
- Operations support 24/7 forecasts service (typically 2x daily forecast issue)
- More frequent forecasts during weather critical operations
- Daily tidal and surface current forecast
- Weather vaning as a result of wind, wave and current conditions
- Route forecast prior to arrival at the site location
