Infoplaza Marine Weather has secured a contract for the provision of a global metocean database to Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Enineering (DSME).
The metocean database, containing wind and wave data, will be used by DSME for the planning and design of marine and offshore projects.
The database, which encompasses data for more than 75.000 model nodes and extends over a 29 year period (1990-2018) was extensively validated and calibrated where needed using buoy and satellite observation data. It was developed over a period of many years and continues remains under constant development.
“The insights we were able to provide is crucial for parties operating in the marine environment as our information helps them, at any time, to make informed decisions,” said IM-Weather’s product owner for Marine, Feddo Vollema.
He added: “For many years the forecasted hand historical wind and wave databases we develop and maintain have supported marine energy companies, their contractors and major dredging companies in planning for safe and efficient operations around the world. By having access to the complete global database, DSME are enabled to simulate a vessel’s behavior along routes or for specific project sites helping them to optimize their ship designs and builds.”
