Due to the changeable nature of weather, working at sea can be challenging. Strong winds or high waves can result in lost time waiting out unfavourable conditions. This is known as weather downtime.
As weather downtime is both a financial and logistical risk, no one can afford to be without a detailed understanding of its impact on programme.
ABPmer’s online weather downtime calculator, Weather Downtime Express (WDTX), has increasingly become the go-to tool to understand and manage the risk working offshore brings.
Since its launch in 2015, new releases and updates have ensured it suits the differing needs of the towage, subsea cable, offshore wind, oil and gas sectors.
Now we are excited to announce this popular, automated service is driven by the same set of global and regional wind and wave datasets that underpins our Global Data Explorer.
