BMT launches dedicated Operational Client Weather and Ocean Information Centre to support operations worldwide

BMT ARGOSS, a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, has launched a dedicated 24/7, 365 days a year operational, maritime weather forecasting centre which will provide vital support for its customer’s operations such as platform installations and maintenance, near shore cable lay operations, dredging works, ship to ship transfers, ongoing LNG terminal operations and port monitoring.

The services offered by the centre will help to optimise operability and minimise risks due to unexpected and unfavourable weather conditions.

Utilising advanced in-house operational, numerical modelling at global, regional and local scales, together with satellite observations and in-situ real-time measurements, BMT ARGOSS’ forecasting services are tailored to individual client requirements. Backed by extensive IT and data management infrastructure, its model systems are routinely and continuously calibrated and validated against independent observations to ensure optimal performance.

Jean-Paul Lindeboom, Senior Meteorologist and heading the centre at BMT ARGOSS explains: “This centre is an exciting step forward for us to support our clients in their business. Understanding customers’ businesses and needs is a vital ingredient to a successful relationship and we recognise that detailed and accurate forecasts of the environmental conditions are critical to our clients and their operations. Through our expert in-house team who have over 25 years’ experience, we are fully committed to ensuring we help minimise the risks involved, by providing high quality meteorological, wave, current and water level forecasting services.”

A key aspect of the services offered by BMT ARGOSS will be its ability to provide forecasters licenced to work onsite, which will be particularly advantageous for special offshore operations such as derrick replacements and the installation of Wellhead protectors in order to enhance operational efficiency and most importantly, minimise any possible safety risks to employees.
