Welcome to the ForeCoast® Marine weekly forecast page. Here you can view the overall viability of typical offshore wind operations at key UK locations, based on the daily weather window availability.
Click on the location markers below to reveal any exceeded weather thresholds.
A viable 6-hour weather window is available for at least 80% of the day
A viable 6-hour weather window is available for 50%-80% of the day
A viable 6-hour weather window is available for less than 50% of the day
Operations are assumed to be viable if:
- wave height < 1.5m
- wind speed at 80m < 15m/s
A viable weather window is a period where the metocean conditions remain within the necessary thresholds for 6 continuous hours.
Weather thresholds that are forecast to be exceeded can be viewed by clicking on the location markers. For example...
