Experts in wave technology, Miros, and one of the world’s leading maritime groups, BW Group, are combining their influence and expertise to disrupt the performance inefficiencies of the shipping industry, providing the necessary tools to bring about a transparent, collaborative, and financially rewarding future for all.
A NEW STANDARD FOR VESSEL PERFORMANCE
Miros RangeFinder Determines Safe Conditions for Jacking Operations During Offshore Wind Farm Construction
When a passing typhoon caused the project’s wave buoy to fail, a Miros RangeFinder was able to deliver accurate, real-time local sea state data continuously, allowing operations to continue.
The Miros RangeFinder is the ultimate stand-alone sensor for airgap, tide, water level, draught and wave measurements. We decided to take a look under the hood with Miros Operations Manager
The Outlook: Stronger Wind, Bigger Waves, and More Extreme Events
Global trends in wind speed and wave height are on the up, with increasingly extreme conditions predicted worldwide. We explore the findings of several studies and discuss the important role of remote sensing in the ongoing surveillance of environmental conditions.
Miros Speed Through Water Unlocks Real-Time Vessel Performance Observations for BW Dry Cargo
Using Miros Wavex, BW Dry Cargo was able to combine in-service data points from BW RYE with measured weather conditions to understand the true value of their investments, as well as to operate the ship more efficiently, saving fuel and, ultimately, reducing carbon emissions.
Infection control on the journey has never been more relevant, and everyone comes with advice on what to do and not to do. It is a confusing time and difficult to keep track of. We have therefore created a checklist that briefly describes what you should keep in mind before, during and after the trip, to ensure that you travel as safely as possible.
That’s 205 Knots and counting!
The #SB1Defiant continues to reach new speeds, and as our Chief Test Pilot, Bill Fell said: “This thing’s got a lot more in it!”
How Miros Is Responding to the Corona Virus
As the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus continues to develop, we offer continuous updates on how Miros is being impacted.
Wavex Delivers Cloud-Integrated Wave & Current Monitoring to the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research
Miros upgraded the Wavex installation onboard the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research’s vessel, G.O. Sars, before it sailed north to Svalbard.
Lightning strikes & Aviation
Lightning strikes can be dangerous in aviation and should be avoided. August 13th-2020 the Oslo area was hit by a tropical type thunderstorm lasting into the early hours. The high frequency of lightning strikes is unusual this far north.
Has the Corona put an end to the Electric Aircraft?
Many people are worried that the corona will stop the development of electric aircraft - on the contrary, says our expert on electric aircraft, Arne Martin Gilberg
Bringing people home
AIRCONTACT: Many have chosen to follow the advice from the Norwegian government to return to Norway. The last 24 hours Aircontact has received numerous requests from groups that wants to return home.
