Increased interest in new development areas for oil and gas and renewable energy is resulting in a growing demand for high-quality metocean data relating to these largely unexplored regions. In response, Fugro has strengthened its numerical modelling capabilities.
Modelling the complexities of local environmental conditions requires refinement, both in the wind fields driving the models and in the model grid size. Although global models are available, their scale is often too large to capture regional features like tropical cyclones with enough accuracy.
