Metoc, one of UK's leading Environmental Engineering companies, has selected detailed marine mapping from SeaZone to support the planning, delivery and management of projects across the UK.
The company has recently been selected to monitor and report on the installation of the world's largest offshore wind farm and been appointed to provide expert advice on a potential alternative to the Severn Barrage. These projects, plus many others around the UK, will benefit from the use of SeaZone's marine geographic information data.
"Using SeaZone data gives us confidence in our studies of the marine and coastal environments and the resulting interpretations and decisions," commented Harshal Galgale, a key member of the Modelling and Optimisation team at Metoc. "The data is provided in a format compatible with our Geographic Information System making it easy to use for visualisation purposes along with the other data we collect."
Metoc helps industry and government to develop resources based on sound financial, environmental, and engineering decisions that reduce risks and costs. They work as advisors and project managers on major infrastructure projects, such as the construction of the £1.3 billion Greater Gabbard offshore wind farm, and provide expert advice to organisations such as the Severn Tidal Fence Consortium, Anglian Water, Financial Consortia and Government. Metoc are also involved in the production of Marine Spatial Plans, due diligence and research projects.
"SeaZone is one of our major providers of data and the solutions they provide underpin the planning, delivery and management of nationally important projects," concluded Galgale.
SeaZone has developed a range of marine geographic information data, software and services. Easy to use, fit for purpose geographic datasets include detailed water depth information, scanned and geocoded Admiralty Charts and the only truly authoritative digital marine map - SeaZone HydroSpatial. SeaZone has also developed next generation software, SeaZone GeoTemporal Editor, to manage and present survey and environmental monitoring data and provide desktop access to the world standard in tidal prediction methodology.
