A safe and efficient path to renewable energy

Metocean forecasting – supporting the construction of the world’s largest wind farm

To complete the world’s largest offshore wind farm – London Array – knowledge of the physical environment was essential to ensure safe and efficient operations. Before and during the construction phase, daily as well as more extreme conditions had to be taken into account. As such, London Array Ltd. asked us to develop a robust and reliable Metocean forecasting system. Our real-time system provided accurate forecasts of Metocean conditions on a detailed spatial and temporal scale. This enabled London Array Ltd. to optimise the construction of the offshore wind farm, minimising delays and ensuring the safety of those working on the project.
