Testing time for Mojo’s Mermaid

Mojo Maritime has developed a marine project planning system called Mermaid to give companies a better understanding of the impact of weather and tidal forces on a project’s schedule.

The company said the aim is to enable enhanced decision making in the early planning stages.
The Mermaid – Marine Economic Risk Management Aid –software simulates marine operations against historical weather and tidal data to support cost-savings through project optimisation.

The system is undergoing testing with a number of clients, with a view to launching towards the end of October, Mojo said.

“The user acceptance testing phase is critical to ensure that that the function, capability and usability of the software has been tested in real world situations,” the company said.

Mojo senior analyst Rich Walker said: “By calibrating accurate weather information dating back over many years (typically between 10 and 23 years), factoring in wave height, sea conditions, wind strength and current velocity and direction, Mermaid enables companies to select the best vessels, ports, methods and processes to suit any proposed project start date.

“This has massive cost-saving implications for a huge variety of marine operations from the offshore renewable market to the oil and gas industries, as well as the shipping and insurance world.”
