The weather is an important factor that needs to be constantly monitored in offshore operations. Not only are offshore platforms susceptible to high winds and frequent severe storms, the weather also effects the sea itself, creating wind waves and swell. The stronger the wind, the stronger the effects on the sea and the greater the potential danger to the offshore platform and its workers.
Our expert team will supply, install, and maintain a range of sensors that meet the standards required by the ICAO, with particular reference to CAP 437, including Wind, T/RH, Pressure, Cloud Height, Visibility and Sea State. The information from this equipment is then presented to the radio operator in a format that is quick and easy to understand.
With considerable experience of weather system installations both on and offshore, our engineers have the necessary expertise and the required qualifications, medical certificates, and insurances, to work safely offshore. All equipment is fully tested in our lab prior to being despatched. Skyview will then work with your Barge Engineer and Electrical Technician before installation to ensure all works are completed as efficiently as possible. The full system commissioning is undertaken prior to handover with comprehensive training provided.
