Metocean services


Our consultancy services can support you from the research phase of operations through to decommissioning. Utilising our globally recognised modelling techniques and wide-ranging datasets, we offer in-house expertise to support your challenges.

Typical metocean services include:

  • Climatology studies - providing monthly, seasonal and decadal statistics on a wide range of parameters covering the wave, wind, ocean and shelf sea environments. Simple and effective analyses to characterise the environment you're working in.
  • Downtime and weather window analysis. These range from the analysis of straight-forward single operations to modelling the delay associated with operations made up of multiple stages with different environmental thresholds. We are specialists in bespoke modelling of complex operations, with a focus on providing the most useful and clear statistics to help minimise downtime and to optimise operational planning.
  • Extreme value analysis - from the derivation of extreme metocean criteria for offshore design studies, compliant with ISO-19901-1, to the analysis of individual storm events to assist post event analyses.
  • High resolution wave modelling - typically supporting coastal engineering or marine renewable projects needing high resolution outputs, we can build and implement SWAN models to downscale our hindcast wave model data.

More complex and bespoke consultancy services are also available for major projects, including climate consultancy, dispersion modelling and developing new hindcast datasets for specific regions. We also offer authoritative, impartial guidance and expert witness testimony on marine environmental conditions.
