UK-based Sennen Tech Ltd, which develops cloud-based software that digitises and centralises the management and operation of renewable energy assets, has announced an update to its realtime weather and weather forecasts module
The update will enable more accurate weather predictions, such as the chance of lightning and fog, for the London Array offshore windfarm.
The update was driven by Sennen’s integration with wind models from DHI and wind models from StormGeo.
Sennen has integrated StormGeo’s wind models, lightning risk data and forecaster-adjusted data four times a day for London Array’s primary forecast sites.
DHI use the same data, running through its models to produce detailed location forecasts. This leads to the delivery of high-quality data via a consistent and robust application programming interface (API) service that is fully integrated with Sennen.
All available signals in the API have been integrated into the Sennen platform including wave height and direction, water depth, current speed and direction, and fog risk.
Integration with DHI data is the latest update to Sennen’s real-time weather and weather forecasts module.
In the module, clients have access to live metocean conditions visualised in different formats with customisable dashboards.
Using the module, they can compare forecast and actual data to boost accuracy and user confidence and automate the prediction of safe working windows based on metocean forecasts, individual vessel characteristics and customisable safety considerations.
