Weather Downtime service enhanced
ABPmer’s Weather Downtime Express service (WDTX) now includes all the company’s global and regional metocean datasets to better predict and manage weather conditions.
Developed in conjunction with offshore operators, WDTX helps ABPmer’s clients understand and manage the weather risk involved in working at sea. Using hindcast meteorological and oceanographic data, the automated system identifies the likely conditions that can be expected at any given time and place.
“The marine environment can be a challenging place to work,” said Robin Stephens, head of metocean consultancy at ABPmer. “As weather downtime is a logistical and financial risk, no one can afford to be without a detailed understanding of its impact on programme.”
He added: “Our weather downtime tool is regularly used by operators, developers and contractors to underpin decisions about schedule, vessel choice and pricing. A key feature is the ability to fine-tune methodology, assets and scheduling – crucial for project optimisation and reducing cost.”
WDTX is part of SEASTATES, ABPmer’s metocean information service, regularly used to inform client feasibility studies, structure design, installation operations and project programming.
