Unlocking the Power of Metocean Data
At Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions (GDG), our team of metocean specialists leverage their expertise and our proprietary software to optimise offshore designs and ensure the operational safety of projects.
Metocean, a combination of meteorological and oceanographic conditions specific to a location or project, plays a crucial role in offshore, coastal, and marine engineering endeavors, including offshore wind and other renewables. Given the intricate connection between the atmosphere and the ocean, metocean studies offer invaluable information throughout the lifecycle of a project, delivering the following benefits:
- Accurately evaluate the marine environment
- Identify and quantify risk
- Efficiently design offshore structures
- Determine the probability of extreme events and weather windows
Our metocean expertise extends across diverse projects, such as leading seabed mobility assessments and assessing metocean site conditions and weather downtime for multiple offshore wind farms.
At GDG, we stay at the forefront of Research and Development to ensure our clients always benefit from the most recent advancements. Our researchers and scientists actively participate in international research projects to drive innovation within the industry. Notably, we have recently undertaken research to enhance our understanding of hydrodynamics and morphodynamics in a tidally-dominated shelf sea setting. This research has resulted in the development of novel methods and approaches to investigate these phenomena.
