Metocean Analyst

As a Metocean Analyst in the energy industry, you’ll make detailed scientific observations about wind, wave and climate conditions in offshore locations such as wind farms. You would collect information on factors like water levels, currents, waves and ice, either in person or remotely through sensors and monitoring tools, classify the conditions according to recognised standards and then share that information with the operators of the site.

Metocean Analysts may be based in an office for data analysis but you will potentially visit offshore sites to make your observations, which might include exposure to some severe weather conditions. You might have the chance to travel to sites all around the world, especially if you work for a specialist consultancy.

Whether you’re researching new observation tools or validating your data against other sources, as a Metocean Analyst, you’ll be helping to develop more offshore wind farms to deliver the renewable energy the world needs.
