Which sectors use our marine services?

Renewable energy

Accurate and reliable wind and wave forecasts greatly contribute to the safe construction, operation, and maintenance of offshore wind farms. Specialist data available in the Marine Weather Dashboard will provide enhanced decision support helping to ensure safety and efficiency.

Reliable information for your wind farm
Receive accurate wind forecasts at multiple heights in order to optimise turbine repair.

Make decisions based on knowledge
Schedule maintenance in ‘low winds’ and protect your crews in ‘high winds’. Plan activities with weather windows.

Renewable energy

Oil and gas

Can a helicopter land on the platform? Can a rig move go ahead? In many locations, weather conditions can change very quickly and compromise your project, staff, and customers.  Our meteorologists can help you minimise downtime by guiding you to the right weather-related decisions.

Operational limits and weather window
By understanding project limits, we can help you choose the right solutions. Our Meteorologists provide critical decision support, allowing you to manage potential weather risks at every level of offshore operations.

Customized data
Receive the forecast in the dashboard, via email (PDF), FTP, CSV or API.

Dredging

As a dredger operator you constantly have to deal with the influence of the weather on your operations, especially in ports, navigation channels and coastal areas where the impact can be considerable. For nearshore locations like this Infoplaza modellers can really help you make a difference, they can analyse bathymetry, select appropriate nested forecast models (SWAN or SWRT) and ensure the best information for your operational area is used. Through collaboration and analysis, we can produce the best forecast possible for your location, to let you take the right decisions.

Nearshore solutions

We use high resolution models to accurately assess the sometimes complex near shore metocean conditions.  We combine model results, weather observations as well as our experience to provide robust and accurate forecasts in these coastal locations.  If you have a challenging operational area we have the skill to forecast for it!   

We also have a Metocean Weather Planning service for nearshore locations. Do you want to know more?

Maritime transport

We can provide site specific forecasts for marine vessel operations, as well as provide routing forecasts for vessels taking longer voyages. This will allow the vessel to sail the most optimal route and carry out its activities efficiently at each location. This service can be further enhanced by providing ship motion forecasts, considering the ships response to wind, waves, swell and direction.

Route and helicopter forecasts

Helicopter logistics are essential in keeping offshore rigs operating effectively. Forecasters pay special attention to visibility and cloudbase elements of the forecast in order to assist aviation departments scheduling. In addition, Infoplaza is investing time and research into icing and trigger lightning forecasts which are increasingly flagged by Heliops and CAP437 as problem factors.
