Offshore platform metocean monitoring
With 1-second QC’d data, a live feed from a permanently installed Lidar may be used to inform transport movements, for example helicopter lifts and craning around site.
- With an almost real-time, accurate shear profile any airborne movements around site can be conducted more efficiently and allow operators to work with a higher level of certainty within their internally approved safety windows for these operations.
- Accurate measurement of the vertical profile of wind offshore supports the planning, design, and operations of offshore oil and gas platforms.
- Combined with other sensors such as wave radar, a full range of meteorological and oceanographic conditions can be monitored and any effects on platforms quantified.
- Extreme events can be monitored and any results fed in to the design of new platforms.
