Design Criteria

The successful design and operation of marine structures and facilities is dependent on understanding metocean conditions at the site of interest. Engineers and operators require a good understanding of these conditions, as they can impact and influence their designs not only operationally but in terms of safety and financial cost.

ABPmer has substantial experience providing metocean design criteria for a variety of engineering purposes. By using long term hindcast models such as SEASTATES, ABPmer’s metocean information service, we provide fast access to quality controlled metocean information.

Our bespoke information supports both preliminary (FEED) and detailed design. All our design criteria reports are prepared to the international standards required by certification authorities.
