Offshore Environmental Monitoring System

Oil, gas, and wind energy maritime operations are safer and more efficient with accurate nowcasting and weather observation insights.

Improve operations, avoid costly delays, and increase safety

Complete offshore environmental monitoring systems (EMS) avoid costly delays and improve the safety of difficult maritime operations. Vaisala’s environmental monitoring instruments and stations provide immediate, accurate observation data across a range of crucial weather parameters, including wind, thunderstorms, lightning, and sea conditions.

Our marine-grade solutions include the latest wind lidar, global storm networks, and weather sensors to address several key applications:

  • Offshore oil and gas rig operations, platform construction, and transportation

  • Wind Turbine Installation Vessel (WTIV) operations, wind farm build-up, and turbine site maintenance

  • Any maritime or port operation where comprehensive wind, thunderstorm, and lightning awareness is needed

Each EMS is enabled with powerful, modern software for accurate and timely insights, historical data and trends, and seamless system integrations.
