Choose VisualEyes™ to manage health and safety risks and make best use of energy assets across the UK and Europe

Our enhanced VisualEyesTM product has been developed in partnership with our customers and offers a whole range of features and benefits to meet your needs.

What is VisualEyesTM?

VisualEyesTM is an easy to use, web-based weather alert system for energy operators and maintenance contractors. It provides five-day weather forecasts combined with site-specific, probabilistic charts and bespoke alerting.

Choose from two versions of VisualEyesTM to suit your needs:

  • VisualEyesTM (full, strategic asset version)

  • VisualEyesTM Light

VisualEyesTM is designed for larger operators who require choice from a broad range of animated weather layers and a long range view out to 14 days in the probabilistic weather charts.

VisualEyesTM Light offers just as many functions as the strategic asset version, but has been tailored to the needs of smaller operators, independent service providers and original equipment manufacturers. It provides a concise selection of animated weather layers and a shorter view out to 7 days in the probabilistic weather charts.

Key features

Both versions of VisualEyesTM enable you to choose from two distinct views to suit your needs. Control Room view, or Weather Chart view:
