O2 METOCEAN is a highly specialised marine oceanographic consulting company and an affiliate of the O2M GROUP. The team comprises oceanographers, coastal engineers and marine modellers who specialise in projects where collection and analysis of oceanographic and meteorological data is critical to inform engineering and/or environmental project decisions.

Our technical focus and experience allow us to tailor methods, develop IP and ultimately propose the optimal solution to inform critical project decision-making. Our rigorous equipment and data management procedures ensure that the data acquired and analysed is fit-for-purpose and delivered in-line with client expectations. We are industry-recognised leaders in the fields of metocean science, oceanography, bathymetric survey and marine modelling.

SECTORS

Cargo ship alongside jetty

Ports & Harbours

Our specialist expertise is critical in supporting Infrastructure design and Port Operations to better understand and manage risks associated with Metocean conditions.
