Metocean Information Services

Drawing on state of the art capabilities in data collection, data management and data analysis, numerical modelling and forecasting, BMT is able to provide comprehensive metocean information for all offshore renewable energy areas worldwide.

Our metocean information services support safe and cost effective design and operations at all stages in the project life cycle.

Operability Statistics

BMT provides operability statistics based on comprehensive in-house databases of high quality satellite and model derived metocean information. We combine weather and seastate expectations with the limitations of vessels and with task schedules to assess the feasibility, cost and financial risk of installation and operations.

Metocean Design Criteria

Our metocean specialists provide the criteria required for concept and detailed design including energy generation potential. They have experience of supporting design teams for projects in all of the world’s renewable energy regions providing data on ambient and extreme wind speeds, wave heights, currents, surges, temperature, icing conditions and fog.

Weather Forecasting Services

BMT’s forecast services are designed to help clients minimise time lost waiting on weather and to ensure operations are conducted within safe working limits. We also provide operational forecasts to support prediction of energy yields. Forecast services are customised to meet specific requirements and are available globally for both offshore and near shore locations.

Vessel Operability Assessments

To support vessel selection we provide vessel operability assessments based on combining a detailed understanding of the metocean conditions at the location or along the transit route with knowledge of vessel performance and performance limits to assess if the vessel is suitable for the task proposed.


We predict scour conditions around foundations, cables and port structures and propose scour protection designs.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in The Netherlands and the UK.
