MEMBER NEWS: Miros doubles as-a-Service contracts for offshore operations in 2023

Miros, leading experts for real-time IoT wave and current monitoring solutions, is pleased to report further expansion of its Sea-State-as-a-Service offering.

During 2023 the company doubled the number of as-a-Service (aaS) contracts, which cover a diverse range of requirements across the offshore vessel market, thanks to strong growth in the UK, Norway and Brazil. Beyond those regions, in the second half of the year new agreements were signed covering projects in Guyana, Gulf of Mexico, and the Middle East.

Increasingly many of the world’s largest offshore operators and regulators recognize Miros WaveSystem, which provides real-time measurements of the local sea state, as a viable and cost-effective solution for optimizing cable and pipe lay, offshore installations, heavy lift, IRM and drilling activities.

Real-time sea state data strengthens the overall decision-making system and provides invaluable insights, allowing conditions to be assessed, analysed, and documented to ensure they are also in line with contractual or technical limitations. WaveSystem is increasingly utilized as a data feed to important onboard systems, like Dynamic Positioning Capability, packaged within survey data requirements, or as part of riser stress analysis and or asset life / asset integrity management.

Miros, via its cutting-edge IoT-enabled platform, transforms how oceanic data is gathered, processed, and utilized. Developed by industry leaders, WaveSystem seamlessly integrates directional sea state measurements from Miros Wavex® and motion-compensated wave measurements, along with draught data from DNV alpha-factor certified Miros RangeFinder, to deliver unparalleled precision and insight into oceanic conditions.

One of the key features is the ability to tailor real-time data to the specific requirements of operators, empowering them with a deeper understanding of their environment and optimal weather windows. This invaluable insight enables greater situational awareness, allowing operators to safely navigate challenges with confidence and precision.

Moreover, Miros’ solutions have set a new standard for user-friendliness and flexibility with its innovative as-a-Service subscription model. Offering a scalable and adaptable tool, designed to seamlessly integrate with existing systems, makes it incredibly easy to implement and manage.

Andrew Wallace, Miros’ VP Offshore Solutions, said: “At Miros we are passionate about making waves in the maritime and energy sectors with our innovative solutions. Our commitment to precision, reliability, and robustness sets us apart, and we’re thrilled to share how our application development, combined with our unique as-a-Service subscription model, is driving significant operational improvements for our clients”.

“We recognize that our success is intertwined with the broader goals of the maritime and energy industries; that is why our systems are designed to support wider industry objectives and contribute to a more sustainable market for all. We are excited to see the impact that our high-quality offerings and supporting applications will have as we continue the journey towards a more sustainable future hand in hand with our customers.”

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
