The BBC Shipping Forecast is a highly respected and widely used service, but optimising marine engineering operations in shallow coastal waters requires much more detail about winds and sea conditions. Site specific, accurate and reliable real-time predictions are needed to manage construction and maintenance schedules during marginal sea conditions in amongst shallow banks and strong currents. HR Wallingford and the UK Met Office have combined their respective skills and modelling capabilities to develop a forecasting system that has been used by LNG terminals, Network Rail and the Royal Navy.
