Real-time knowledge of local sea state and weather conditions can contribute substantially to the safety, performance and efficiency of offshore operations. These insights can reduce operational costs and support onshore decision-making processes too.
Miros provides a range of solutions for the collection of environmental data, delivering it directly to the Cloud and making it available on any device. Our dry, IoT-enabled sensors provide real-time and historical data to all life-of-field interfaces, anytime, anywhere. Miros technology monitors local environmental conditions and makes the data accessible on- or offshore. What’s more, it does so without the use of any underwater equipment. In this way, Miros solutions can drive improvement of your triple bottom line.
Real-time knowledge of environmental conditions can contribute significantly to personnel safety.
Miros technology widens weather windows, reducing “waiting on weather” and helping you operate closer to established limits.
Avoid the deployment of vessels in weather conditions that can ultimately inhibit the completion of a mission.

Delivering Ocean Insights with Miros Cloud
Miros’ Cloud-based technology for wave and current monitoring during offshore operations gives you decision-making solutions that provide everyone involved with access to real-time and historical data, anytime, anywhere, and to any device.
Miros solutions are IoT-based, providing seamless integration with the Cloud for immediate access, as well as data collection and storage or integration with any third-party weather sensors on site, weather forecasts, tidal tables, AIS and any other relevant data sources. In this way, Miros helps its customers to build a holistic decision-support system.
With Miros Cloud, all data is securely stored for quick and easy access or download. This can facilitate post-operation and incident analyses, the planning of future operations, or even long-term asset integrity assessments.
Miros’ wave sensors have been certified for their accuracy by reputable certification agencies. They have been thoroughly tested against competing brands and technologies by independent third parties. In addition, the Miros WaveFinder is the only alpha-factor approved wave-monitoring instrument on the market.
Miros’ portfolio of solutions is based on stand-alone sensors with embedded processing and browser-based GUI for set-up and configuration. No integration or external processing is needed. Installation and commissioning is achieved by simply adding power and Internet. Miros’ sensors do not need calibration at commissioning. This makes our offerings truly plug and play.
With more than 35 years’ experience working in the harsh environment of the North Sea, Miros has developed a global customer base, including the world’s major energy companies and vessel operators. Miros is proud to be a member of both Scottish Renewables, RenewableUK and the Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group.

In the event of an oil spill, the most important factor in successful containment is an early response. The quicker teams can mobilise to contain a spill, the greater the chances of a successful clean-up.
Miros’ dry-mounted Wavex was selected by EQUANS to reliably collect operation-critical wave and current data on the offshore substation for the Saint-Brieuc Offshore Wind Farm, Iberdrola’s first large-scale and flagship offshore wind power project in Brittany, France.
One of the key challenges facing any offshore wind operator, and one which has high significance for their success, is around the accessibility of assets. However, a new study by Trios Renewables, the University of Strathclyde and wave sensor specialists Miros has, for the first time, provided evidence of the potential benefits of direct wave measurements for offshore wind farms.
