StormGeo and Deep Sea Mooring partner on marine weather update service

Norway-based StormGeo has signed an agreement with Deep Sea Mooring for delivering notifications of weather-related movements of floating offshore units and vessels undertaking complex marine operations.

Norway-based StormGeo has signed an agreement with Deep Sea Mooring for delivering notifications of weather-related movements of floating offshore units and vessels undertaking complex marine operations.

The companies will prepare the notifications through the combination of detailed weather forecasts and advanced hydrodynamic models. With this information, users will be able to determine the actual consequences of forecasted weather on vessels.

StormGeo vice-president (offshore) Hogne Folkestad said: “This agreement with Deep Sea Mooring compliments and supports our ambition to deliver high-quality services that facilitate optimum decision-making on weather-sensitive operations.

“The combination of detailed weather forecasts and advanced hydrodynamic models…will be able to determine the actual consequences of forecasted weather on vessels.” 

“In a time when the focus on cost saving and efficiencies is so great, it’s more important than ever to combine detailed weather information with optimal planning capabilities to execute critical offshore work.”

Under this agreement, StormGeo will be assigned to publish and support the notifications, while its partner will be responsible for the hydrodynamic models and all calculations of motion resulting from the expected weather.

This approach will be useful for all marine operations, including determining whether the conditions / movements are within the set landing criteria for helicopter traffic, Deep Sea Mooring stated.

Other applications for the service include drilling operations and offshore lifting operations on floating units.

The companies expect that through the use of their technology, customers will have a better basis for planning, decision-making and performing secure operations while reducing operational expenditure.
