The response of a vessel to wave conditions can be determined using the vessel’s displacement Response Amplitude Operators (RAO). Measuring and forecasting heave, pitch and roll can greatly improve the safety of operations.
Using the vessel’s RAOs provided by the vessel operator, RPS is presently providing clients with:
Statistics and Operability
Using measured wave spectral data or hindcast modelled wave spectra, RPS are able to provide an analysis of a vessel’s suitability for working at your location. This includes downtime analysis and operational window estimates.
Measured and Forecast data can be displayed on our dedicated web display pages or provided via a web service such as WMS or WFS for integrating with your in-house GIS displays.
Monthly verification reports review the previous month of forecast and measured MRU or DWR data. Verification reports are valuable to confirm the operability of the vessel for management review.
End of Project Review
At the completion of the project this review will assess how closely the Statistics and Operability report matched the actual measurements and forecasts during operations.
