BMT Argoss, part of the BMT Group, has launched a new ice charting capability. The new capability will work alongside the companys existing weather forecasting services. As part of its development, several senior BMT meteorologists took part in a training programme at the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) in Copenhagen, Denmark. Jean-Paul Lindeboom, director of metocean weather forecasting at BMT Argoss, said, This combined capability under one roof is unique to the market. More and more of our clients are looking at these new, harsher environments; therefore, having both a comprehensive understanding of the weather and the ice regime makes sense as a complete package, providing cost efficiencies and a more progressive service for our customers. BMT Argoss provides a wide range of services aimed at reducing the risks involved with offshore design and operations. A specialist in metocean modelling, meteorology and weather forecasting, as well as remote sensing data, it has contributed to projects in the Yamal Peninsula, the Baltic Sea, the Caspian Sea and the Sakhalin Sea area.
