BMT Argoss, a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, has launched a dedicated 24/7, 365 days a year operational, maritime weather forecasting centre to provide support for customer operations such as platform installations and maintenance, near shore cable laying operations, dredging works, ongoing LNG terminal operations, and other marine activities. The service is designed to help to optimise operability and minimise risks due to unexpected and unfavourable weather conditions.
The company's services utilise advanced in-house operational, numerical modelling at global, regional and local scales, coupled with satellite observations and in-situ real-time measurements. Backed by extensive IT and data management infrastructure, its model systems are said by BMT to be routinely and continuously calibrated and validated against independent observations to ensure optimal performance.
Jean-Paul Lindeboom, senior meteorologist and head of the centre said "We are fully committed to ensuring we help minimise the risks involved, by providing high quality meteorological, wave, current and water level forecasting services.°
