Metocean Forecasting


Forecasting provided by our specialist meteorologists enabled the Balhaf export facilty to optimise its operations by minimising weather-related downtime.

The BMT ARGOSS global Wavewatch III system was used to set up regional and local SWAN wave models at the boundaries, while a local tidal model provided  tidal currents. These were combined with forecast data from an ocean circulation model. 

We hosted a client-secure website through which our operational forecasters provided specialist meteorological input. They also sent information by e-mail.
