ABPmer has extended its Seastates service to include the Baltic Sea. The Baltic forecast combines meteorological data with high resolution wave models and is validated against local observations. In the forecast, this means that the models are continuously "trained" so improving the accuracy of the "raw" forecasts.
The company extended the service to include the Baltic due to their offshore wind clients’ increasing activity in the area. The forecast updates four times a day and extends to five days ahead for wind and wave conditions. The hindcast database holds verified hourly wind and wave conditions back to 1979 which can be used for construction and operational planning as well as informing engineering design.
