Waves weather forecasting adopted by UK Offshore Windfarm

Waves weather forecasting adopted by UK Offshore Windfarm

One of the UK’s leading machine learning and applied A.I providers to the offshore wind industry, Cognitive Business, has this month announced it has joined forces with Weatherquest to integrate weather forecasts into its industry first WAVES technology which has already been implemented by RWE on its Robin Rigg windfarm.

A data driven tool that predicts with 99.9% accuracy the safest and most successful windows for crew transfers to offshore wind platforms WAVES is the first technology of its kind and is already being used by RWE across its Robin Rigg and Rampion windfarms.

The collaboration has now seen RWE integrate Weatherquest’s API into the already operational WAVES platform on Robin Rigg to work alongside other forecast data to enable in-day and week-ahead O&M decision-support for turbine specific accessibility.

Speaking about the upgrades to its WAVES technology, MD at Cognitive Business, Ty Burridge Oakland said: “The integration of WAVES with Weatherquest’s API allows us to develop our unique technology yet further to make it an even more trusted tool for windfarm owners and operators to plan and schedule their O&M programmes.

“WAVES is already a hugely accurate and relied upon technology in the industry for effectively, efficiently and safely deploying crews onto windfarms to conduct repairs and maintenance and by integrating weather forecast data, we can confidently say we have made an already highly valued technology an even more robust tool for managing and planning offshore wind repair and maintenance programmes.” 

Developed by Nottingham and London based, Cognitive Business in 2020, WAVES was funded in the same year by the Offshore Wind Growth Partnership to better predict safer and more successful windows for crew transfers to offshore wind platforms.

Speaking about the integration of Weatherquest’s bespoke forecasts into the technology Steve Dorling, Chief Executive at Weatherquest said: “WAVES has developed a reputation within the offshore wind industry, over a number of years, for enabling owners and operators to deploy their crews with real accuracy and has been working to great effect on some of the UK’s largest windfarms. 

“It therefore made absolute sense for us both, as data analysis businesses focused on supporting safety and productivity, to combine our expertise in this innovative way. It’s great that we can further enhance the WAVES technology together in a market where it is already a trusted technology for identifying optimal windows for offshore wind crew transfers.”

Cognitive Business is an industry leader in machine learning and applied A.I, developing a wide range of decision support, performance monitoring, and predictive maintenance solutions for offshore wind operations and maintenance applications.

Weatherquest is a privately owned weather forecasting and weather analysis company headquartered at the University of East Anglia providing weather forecasting support services across sectors in the UK and Northern Europe including onshore and offshore wind energy and ports.
