Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, China and Vietnam are key emerging markets for offshore windfarm developers. To support client projects in Northeast Asia, ABPmer, has further refined its SEASTATES metocean information across this region.
Enhancing their regional model resolution, along with simulating winds and waves associated with historical tropical cyclones, has provided further characterisation of the meteorological and oceanographic processes. The resulting 40-year metocean hindcast database derived from this work is being regularly used as a basis for site characterisation and workability assessments. It can also be used to inform engineering design and programme planning.
