Learn how ForeCoast® Marine is being used to optimise O&M strategies for marine installations such as offshore wind and oil and gas.
The ForeCoast® Marine Gamer Mode simulates the O&M of installations such as wind farms, in a virtual world, by representing in detail the revenue generated by assets (e.g. by turbines), the failure of assets, the operations required to correct failures and undertake maintenance, and the associated impacts of metocean conditions.
These simulations are used to evaluate the performance of a proposed O&M strategy in terms of:
The system can then be used to test out how different O&M strategies will influence project performance for example through changes to:
The number and types of vessels used
The way that operations are scheduled during a shift, for example prioritising corrective over preventative maintenance operations
Whether assets are replaced or repaired when a failure occurs
The location(s) of the port(s) used to berth and charter vessels.
The type of turbines used and their expected reliability
By optimising your O&M strategy, you can demonstrate to colleagues, clients, investors and financiers that high levels of due diligence have been taken in the design of your strategy.

Here's how you can get your own
Please contact us to arrange a chat about your metocean risks and we will give you a free demonstration of the Gamer Mode (in person, or by webinar).
TIMESCALES: meeting duration, approximately 1 hour
After speaking with you, we will draft a proposal, scoping out the nature of the work we can do to provide a bespoke Gamer Mode that suits your needs.
TIMESCALES: proposal delivered within one week of speaking with you
Upon approval of the proposed work, we will develop your Gamer Mode model in close cooperation with you, providing regular updates.
TIMESCALES: Bespoke system delivered within 1-4 weeks, depending on the nature and complexity of your model
Some of our clients want us to run the Gamer Mode model as part of a consultancy service. Some want us to develop a bespoke system for their internal use. We are happy either way.
We can deliver a Gamer Mode model for your internal use, we will provide training on how to use it.
TIMESCALES: Training should just take half a day
Once in operation, we are here to support, just on the other end of a line.
