Pioneering marine project

Mermaid_VF_PressRelease-2.jpgJames Fisher Marine Services, part of James Fisher and Sons, has announced that Vattenfall, one of Europe’s leading -wind park operators, has ordered a full Mermaid system license for the strategic planning of its offshore wind farm operations.

The company says Mermaid provides increased understanding of the impact of weather and tidal forces on a project's schedule to companies involved in marine operations and by accurately simulating marine operations against historical weather and tidal data, Mermaid enables enhanced decision-making in the early planning stages to support significant cost-savings through project optimisation.

JFMS says since its launch by Mojo Maritime (a trading division of JFMS) in autumn 2015, Mermaid has seen significant interest from the marine industry, and become intrinsic to early adopter’s project planning processes. Vattenfall was a key participant in the development of the Mermaid system, providing user testing and feedback during its late development phases prior to launch and has gone on to order a full license.

“Mermaid is a comprehensive solution for our marine weather risk modelling. We need to know how much and for how long the weather will cost us, and Mermaid supplies the answers. It’s fully flexible, being able to model the smallest operations to large-scale programmes and its easy-to-use interface allows us to model fast, and iterate project plans quickly.” Explained Anne Lina Holy, project simulation analyst at Vattenfall.
