ABPmer’s Metocean Information Enhanced in Northeast Asia
Asia is set to become a leader in offshore wind, with Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, China and Vietnam key emerging markets for offshore windfarm developers.
To support client projects in Northeast Asia, ABPmer, has further refined its SEASTATES metocean information across this region.
Enhancing their regional model resolution, along with simulating winds and waves associated with historical tropical cyclones, has provided further characterization of the meteorological and oceanographic processes.
The resulting 40-year metocean hindcast database derived from this work is being regularly used as a basis for site characterization and workability assessments. It can also be used to inform engineering design and program planning.
Robin Stephens, ABPmer’s Metocean Business Manager said: “Having assisted the UK offshore windfarm market since its inception, ABPmer is increasingly supporting developments in new offshore wind markets across the globe.
“Refining our metocean information in places of interest ensures clients continue to make decisions based upon robust, cost-effective metocean data and analysis, backed by our regional experience and process knowledge.”
As with other SEASTATES updates, the validation summary associated with the Northeast Asia model is available for download from ABPmer’s SEASTATES metocean information website.
ABPmer’s team of highly skilled metocean consultants use an extensive suite of metocean analytical software to deliver projects worldwide, meeting the requirements and expectations of major international offshore operators and certifying authorities.
