From operations involving topside oil and gas to those within offshore wind and everything in between, reliable data is essential for ensuring the safety of staff as well as the integrity of assets. Systems that monitor wave height and sea level conditions in real time enable better decisions than forecast data, providing live insights that allow operators to be better informed about weather-sensitive operations.
The value of Miros’ solutions lies in the expansion of weather-related operating limits and the ability to operate closer to those limits. This translates into wider weather windows, enhanced performance, and increased safety.
More Than 35 Years’ Experience Empowering Offshore Operations
For more than 35 years, Miros has provided accurate, reliable ocean monitoring systems to the maritime industry with the objective of enhancing weather windows and driving operational safety in harsh offshore environments. Miros excels at measuring local environmental conditions and making the data accessible in real time, on- or offshore.

Miros’ Wavex facilitates real-time monitoring of ocean surface currents from moving vessels, without the use of equipment immersed in water.
Marine operations are particularly sensitive to environmental challenges such as those posed by unpredictable weather conditions. Undertaking real-time measurements and analysis, as well as forming appropriate risk assessments based on wind and weather data, can help to mitigate the potential challenges of project delays, cost overruns, property damage and safety.
How to Use Cloud-Integrated Wave Radars to Mitigate Risk While Creating Operational and Cost Efficiencies?
At the end of 2018, Miros launched a brand new offering, making dry sea-state measurements available as a service through the Cloud. For our customers, Miros’ Cloud-integrated wave radars mean flexible access to real-time data without having to cover the investment in data collection and transfer equipment.
