Wave prediction

  • Red light: seconds to next workable period of 30 seconds or longer
  • Green light: seconds left to perform operation

Reduce risk, gain workability

Thousands of ships are challenged with difficult offshore tasks on a daily basis. Operational boundaries for these ships are constantly redefined due to new technology.

NEXT Ocean offers such enabling technology. By scanning the waves we provide you information on your ship's actual motions, minutes ahead in time.


  • Lower risk by large wave warning
  • Literarily 'see' the waves coming, even by night
  • Increase uptime whilst keeping safety standards intact
