BMT ARGOSS Launches Ice Charting Capability - 10/01/2017


BMT ARGOSS (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group, a leading international design, engineering and risk management consultancy, has launched an ice charting capability. Coupled with the company's extensive weather forecasting expertise, this will provide a more enhanced and cost-effective service to customers globally. As part of this new capability, a number of BMT’s key senior meteorologists have completed a training programme at the Danish Meteorological Institute.

BMT’s Mark van der Putte who took part in the training comments: “The training has allowed us to better understand the ice regime, i.e. how ice builds up, how it moves and reacts and how it evolves during the season.  Interpreting satellite images is also a key requirement for delivering an effective output.  The ice build-up and movement is very dependent on the weather therefore our extensive meteorological knowledge and experience will help us to further improve the service we provide.”

For the past 18 years, BMT ARGOSS has provided a wide range of services aimed at reducing the risks involved with offshore design and operations.  Its expertise in the field of metocean modelling, meteorology and weather forecasting as well as remote sensing data has been utilised for projects in areas such as Yamal, the Baltic Sea, the Caspian Sea and the Sakhalin sea area.
