Operational metocean forecasts

Svašek Hydraulics can deliver operational metocean forecasts all over the world. These operational forecasts can be produced with state-of-the-art techniques (using FINEL2D flow modelling combined with predicted air pressure and wind fields) or more straight forward with available NOAA forecasts. An example of both can be found below.

For the final sand clossure of Maasvlakte 2, the extension of the port of Rotterdam, Svašek Hydraulics provided to the contractor hourly current forecasts around Maasvlakte 2 and in the closure gap.


Wind and wave forecasts based on NOAA data can be presented like the example of Curacao below. Click on a location to get a wind and wave forecast (will be given in a seperate window).
