As the need for renewable energy sources becomes increasingly important for our environment, Hermess is focused on providing services helping our clients to develop and operate renewable energy facilities worldwide. For companies involved in renewable energy, whether wind, wave, tidal or solar energy, the environmental conditions are essential for their power output estimates and, therefore, the revenues of a project. Also, for design, safety, installation, and maintenance, the cost side of a project is of great importance.
We offer a comprehensive portfolio of services for renewable energy. For management of your facilities and for planning and optimising your operations. Services include siting and feasibility studies, met-ocean hindcast studies to support design and planning, and workability analysis for installation and/or maintenance operations. We provide long-term, site-specific time series of wind, wave, current and tidal parameters for energy yield assessments.
We provide detailed weather and oceanographic forecast information for energy output forecasts and to support offshore operations. For providing wind & solar data, we use a state-of-the-art numerical weather model, enabling us to deliver weather data meeting user requirements. The NWP model can be configured to consider local conditions specific to the site of interest. For offshore and onshore wind power and solar energy farms, services can be provided. Forecasts are typically offered with a 15-minute interval and a forecast horizon between 2 and 10 days.
An overview of our services for Renewables is given below.
