ABPmer has been commissioned by Energie Baden-Wüerttemberg (EnBW) and bp to provide detailed metocean design information for the new Morgan and Mona offshore wind farms in the eastern Irish Sea.
In addition to delivering metocean design and operating criteria for the wind farms and export cable corridors, ABPmer will support the partnership during the certification process. ABPmer will use its local oceanographic and marine physical process expertise to build and calibrate bespoke numerical hydrodynamic and spectral wave models for the project. The model allows the ABPmer team to generate nearly 45 years of continuous site-specific timeseries data, at every cell in the model mesh. The team will then use a suite of in-house, analysis tools to derive the suite of metocean criteria needed by the engineering teams and certification body.
