BERGEN, Norway – StormGeo and Deep Sea Mooring have agreed to provide notifications of weather-related movements of floating offshore units and vessels undertaking complex marine operations.
“We are delighted to sign this agreement with StormGeo,” said Åge Straume, CEO of Deep Sea Mooring. “It means that together we can offer an excellent planning tool, enabling users to make early decisions regarding forthcoming marine operations and thus minimize the movement of vessels and helicopter decks. This will result in significant savings for our customers.”
The notifications are made through the combination of detailed weather forecasts and advanced hydrodynamic models, which can identify critical movements on floating offshore units. By doing so, recipients can be alerted to the actual consequence of the forecasted weather on vessels, rather than just the weather itself.
StormGeo will publish and support the notifications, while Deep Sea Mooring will be responsible for the hydrodynamic models and all calculations of motion resulting from the expected weather.
