Real-time metocean data transmitted by a Fugro SEAWATCH Wavescan buoy is enabling energy industry construction expert Technip to plan its operations more effectively, leading to improved safety and cost-efficiency.

Work is well underway on Technip's largest UK North Sea contract to date. Located West of Shetland, BP's Quad 204 project involves replacing the existing Schiehallion production facility with a new, purpose-built FPSO (floating, production, storage and offloading facility) and installing extensive new subsea infrastructure.

Fugro understood Technip's requirements from the outset, as Commercial Manager, Jonathan Ainley explains, 'West of Shetland is well known as a harsh offshore environment with big waves and strong currents - conditions that are far from ideal in a construction setting.

'We have worked with both Technip and BP for many years and know that maintaining a safe operating environment is the number one priority. BP specifically required reliable real-time wave height, wind and current data to manage their installation criteria thresholds. Access to these metocean data is also critical for vessel management and safe and efficient operational planning.'
