Custom-made near-shore forecasts

It is quite a job to lay cables on the seabed, and also a challenge to make an adequate wave forecast for these activities. Dredging companies are doing the former, MeteoGroup the latter. Some of MeteoGroup’s customers pull cables from a wind farm to Zeebrugge, and during this work the wave height threshold is only 1.5 meters. Reliable wave forecasts are therefore extremely important but are very complicated to produce. There are several sandbanks off the Belgian coast that interact with the incoming waves in many ways but MeteoGroup can make accurate forecasts for this problematic location. These are produced via a newly-developed infrastructure in the cloud that couples atmospheric and wave models. This innovative set-up does looks not only at the sea but incorporates atmospheric winds that drive the waves. As a result, we can provide detailed forecasts for your offshore activities.
