When I tell people I work with clients who operate in the Barents Sea, I’m often met with the overwhelming perception of the extreme weather in this part of the world.
We really appreciate the forecasts specific to our areas of operation—when freezing conditions or a hurricane are imminent, we find these forecasts very useful in making our plans, considering the need for site closure or scheduling adjustments.Steve Moskowitz
Manage risk of sea ice and icebergs
Collect SAR data of sea ice/icebergs from different sources in a timely manner and be able to communicate the risk to personnel
Have a contingency plan in case of failure to get supporting data about sea ice.
Whether you’re drilling in Arctic seas or laying cables in areas with varying ice conditions, our integrated information sources and satellite imagery will keep your operation safe and on track during the open season.
From the time you start to plan your operation, we’ll give you integrated information to show you the whole environmental risk picture. Throughout your project, we’ll give you the weather decision support you need to keep your people, equipment and assets safe, and to optimize weather windows.
We’ll help you assess risks and make contingency plans related to special Arctic phenomena such as Polar lows, summertime fog, sea ice or icebergs.
The project, known as MULDIARCOS, has been running for more than two years with assistance from Viking Supply Ships, Hurtigruten and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines in providing industry contributions on user requirements and testing.
