When a developer, operator, manager or contractor does not have metocean data for decisions, a supplier needs to be found. Petrofac Facilities Management Ltd came to us for wave and current data and statistics for a specific site in UK waters.
Using our SEASTATES wave hindcast database we described the “total sea” condition for the place of interest and provided wave time series data at hourly intervals including significant wave height, peak wave period and near bed orbital velocity.
Using our SEASTATES tide and surge hindcast database we gave Petrofac information on the total currents (both tidal and surge effects) together with data provision at specific reference levels (near bed, surface etc).
We also provided a history severe weather events and wave and current statistics as scatter tables.
Petrofac used all this data to inform their engineering analysis.
