Breaking News from ONS: Petrobras to Install DADAS MetOcean Software from A+D on all Rigs in Brazil

Petrobras has confirmed that it will install the DADAS MetOcean software on all Petrobras rigs and FPSOs in Brazil.

Automasjon og Data (A+D) is a Norway-based company specialising in instrumentation and software for collection of meteorological and oceanographic data. A+D is one of the leading companies for building and installing environmental monitoring systems for offshore platforms with several hundred systems in operation on offshore rigs worldwide.

"The DADAS software will enable Petrobras to connect to all its rigs online to collect meteorological and oceanographic data."

The DADAS software will enable Petrobras to connect to all its rigs online to collect meteorological and oceanographic data. This is specially important for areas with extreme weather conditions.

All MetOcean data from the Brazilian continental shelf is collected into one common onshore database for current and future use. Such data is used for many different applications, including design calculations for new developments, operational use and statistical use. Current development plans in Brazil indicate up to 200 operational units in the country until 2020.

The contract with Petrobras is the result of more than three years of development and testing, where the standard DADAS software has been further developed and adapted to Petrobras’ specifications. This will continue in the coming years with further software development work, training seminars and other additional work.
