Forecoast Marine helps ports and offshore wind industry with future climate planning

Ports are complex, multifaceted environments. Being situated in the coastal zone at sea-level, they are particularly vulnerable to climate change e.g. the impacts of rising sea levels, storm intensity and frequency, extremes of precipitation and temperature etc on vessel operations, infrastructure requirements etc. It is becoming vital that ports understand their exposure to climate change and that mitigation strategies are embedded in future operational and development planning. Offshore, climate change could reduce or increase the energy yield of wind farms and therefore the revenue produced, which in turn may affect the viability of offshore wind energy as a renewable source of electricit
