Frequently Asked Questions

Developed in conjunction with the offshore wind industry, our express service helps clients make quicker weather dependent decisions by offering 24/7 access to ABPmer’s SEASTATES weather downtime calculator.

A user inputs vessel position, tasks and limiting metocean conditions. Once provided, various weather window statistics are calculated and returned within minutes.

The results include: weather downtime and extended task duration at all probability levels, project risk profile, and a breakdown of downtime per task, to enable programme optimisation. All results are provided in both tables of values and easy-to-understand graphics.

The WDTX service analyses the proportion of time spent working and not working based on a task list and location you provide.

Statistics are reported by month for a range of probabilities allowing you to assess the statistics most applicable to your assessment.

We provide a range of outputs to help you identify particular areas of project risk, including: identification of the individual tasks in your operation contributing the most weather downtime and providing a timeline of progression through a task list.

Weather downtime can be a large financial cost and can cause delays to a work programme.

Having access to robust statistical estimates of likely weather downtime can dramatically improve your understanding of project risk.
