A+D is one of the world’s leading companies for MetOcean or meteorological and oceanographic data systems. Main products range from Weather Stations to complete Helideck Monitoring Systems, Vessel Motion Monitoring Systems and Environmental Monitoring Systems for marine and offshore users in demanding applications. Such systems are basically a very sophisticated weather station measuring wind, temperatures, barometric pressure, motions, sea currents, waves, etc., but can include a number of additional sensors and tailor-made functions essential for offshore users.
All offshore wind turbines, service platforms and vessels need environmental data for daily operational use and as an important tool for safety purposes.
A+D have had their software package DADAS in use in a large number of MetOcean data systems all over the world since 1992. The DADAS software is basically a general data acquisition package incorporating a very flexible display module, a comprehensive reporting module, alarm modules and the possibility to control smaller processes directly.
Environmental Monitoring Systems
Often known as EMS/EMP systems, Weather Stations or MetOcean systems are a very important tool for many users onshore and offshore. EMS systems using the well proven DADAS software from A+D have been in use for more than 18 years and have an excellent track record
Helideck Monitoring Systems for service platforms
A+D has been involved in developing Helideck Monitoring Systems since these systems were first introduced. New systems will comply with all known rules and regulations worldwide, including the CAA CAP 437 and the Norwegian Standard for HMS systems.
Vessel Motion Monitoring Systems for service vessels
A+D has been involved in developing Vessel Motion Monitoring Systems together with a number of the main players in the offshore wind industry. We now have a working system for monitoring all six degrees of freedom for smaller service vessels, both during transport to and from the offshore sites and during the critical phase of boarding the installations.
Meteorological and Oceanographic sensors
A+D has a vast experience in selecting, operating and maintaining the best sensors for the tough operational conditions offshore. Only sensors with an excellent track record will be recommended for use in such critical applications. A+D can supply everything from single sensors to complete turn-key systems.
Service work and calibration services
A+D has a well qualified team of offshore service engineers, including experienced and certified support engineers onshore, who can undertake service work on all makes and models of MetOcean systems, EMP / EMS systems, HMS systems, meteorological and oceanographic sensors, etc. Our workshop is equipped for servicing and calibrating most kinds of sensors and instrumentation and has a fast track supply line for spare parts.
