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.
