MEMBER NEWS: Miros unveils “Forecast” app to boost maritime safety and operational efficiency

Miros, the ocean insights leader, has expanded its product offering with the launch of a new application designed to provide a comprehensive solution that empowers users with the necessary insights to navigate and manage offshore operations with confidence and precision. This cutting-edge addition to Miros Cloud Home is accessible for installation through a cost-effective subscription model.

Dubbed ‘Forecast’, the company’s latest addition to Miros Cloud Home (, is expected to transform offshore operations by seamlessly integrating real-time measured ocean data with forecasted sea conditions.

By providing up-to-the-minute views of the sea conditions combined with the forecasted data, the app will empower marine operations teams, site managers, control room operators, and diving or ROV technicians to navigate the unpredictable seas with confidence.

Aurelia Paraschiv, Miros IoT Product Manager, said: “We are constantly working to make sure that our products remain at the cutting edge of technology and Forecast is the result of these efforts. By combining real-time wave data with forecasted conditions, users can make accurate decisions regarding offshore operations, crew deployment, and equipment usage, leading to enhanced operational efficiency and overall performance.

“The application offers personalized visual alerts, enabling a proactive response to changing conditions, along with the capability to delve into historical data for trend analysis, pattern recognition, and improved long-term planning.”

In addition to Miros’ existing real-time dashboards and services, Forecast is designed to elevate maritime safety and operational efficiency, enhancing performance through data-led decision-making.

The application has already undergone successful pilot testing with key offshore customers within the sector, receiving positive feedback.

Jonas Røstad, Miros Chief Commercial Officer, stated: “In the ever-evolving landscape of maritime and offshore operations, staying ahead of environmental conditions is paramount to safety, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. Forecast will enhance users understanding of the sea-state, allowing them to make swift decisions with certainty. The offshore sector has undergone many changes over the years, but there has always and will always be a need for reliable, digestible information in real-time.”

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.
