Observator serves a variety of markets: Offshore Market

Thursday 11 December 2014

It’s not a coincidence that the Marine and Offshore markets are the ones Observator feels at home. Observator was founded in 1924 by a group of ship-owners in the harbor town Rotterdam.

However other markets, close to Marine and Offshore, are considered to be ours as well: Dredging, Harbors and container terminals. ‘Where weather meets water’ is the place Observator can be found. Also other high demanding markets such as Avionics and Renewable energy often use the Observator know-how.

Offshore Market
Having 90 years of experience in maritime operations, we know weather plays a critical role in the offshore industry. From platforms to FPSO’s, from drill vessels to OSV’s and from DSV’s to heavy lift operations, accurate measurement of weather and sea state circumstances contribute to increase safety and efficiency.

Besides accuracy of the sensors, we realize that the quality of these sensors is very important, especially in these hard environmental circumstances. Therefore we will never make concessions to the quality of our meteorological and hydrological sensors.

Fortunately we are still able to offer competitively priced and flexible systems since the Observator software system (OMC-Data-OnLine) used in other markets as well and our dedicated displays are our own design.

Besides the supply of instruments and systems, we are able to offer turn-key solutions, commissioning/site acceptance and yearly maintenance as well.
