All MetOcean data from the Brazilian continental shelf is collected into one common onshore database for current and future use

The software will enable Petrobras to connect to all their rigs online to collect meteorological and oceanographic data. This is especially important for areas with extreme weather conditions.

Automasjon og Data (A+D) is a Sandnes, Norway based company specialising in instrumentation and software for collection of meteorological and oceanographic data. A+D is one of the leading companies for building and installing environmental monitoring systems for offshore platforms with several hundred systems in operation on offshore rigs around the globe.

All MetOcean data from the Brazilian continental shelf is collected into one common onshore database for current and future use. This data is used for many different applications including design calculations for new developments, operational and statistical use. At present the plan is for Petrobras to have 200 operational units in Brazil until 2020.

The announcement was made today at the ONS event in Stavanger.
