ABPmer further supports wind farm development in the Irish Sea

Delivering metocean criteria to support the design, construction and operation of the Morgan and Mona offshore wind farms.

ABPmer has been commissioned by Energie Baden-Wüerttemberg AG (EnBW) and international energy company bp to provide detailed metocean design information for the new Morgan and Mona offshore wind farms in the eastern Irish Sea.

In addition to delivering metocean design and operating criteria for the wind farms and export cable corridors, ABPmer will support the partnership during the certification process.

ABPmer will use its extensive local oceanographic and marine physical process expertise to build and calibrate bespoke numerical hydrodynamic and spectral wave models for the project.

The model allows the ABPmer team to generate nearly 45 years of continuous site-specific timeseries data, at every cell in the model mesh. The team will then use a suite of in-house, state-of-the-art analysis tools to derive the extensive suite of metocean criteria needed by the engineering teams and certification body. 

Heidi Roberts, ABPmer Project Director said:

“This exciting project comes at a time of intense activity in the offshore wind industry, and we’re really pleased to be providing the metocean data which will support the design, construction and operation of the Morgan and Mona OWFs.”

Following the successful completion of two similar projects for Celtic and Baltic Sea floating offshore wind farms, this enterprise validates ABPmer’s burgeoning industry reputation as a provider of premium metocean and environmental products and services.

ABPmer is a recognised Development Service Provider offering a wide range of services that support clients throughout a renewable project life cycle.

We have provided input to most of the UK’s offshore wind, wave and tidal developments, as well as being regularly asked to advise government when developing and shaping policy.
