Nowcasting Weather Celebrates 10 Years

Nowcasting Weather, Specialist Forecasting Company, is celebrating its 10th anniversary of business. Organic growth and carefully chosen strategic partnerships have allowed Nowcasting Weather develop into a world leader in marine forecasting and expand its business exponentially.

Since 1999, Nowcasting Weather has been providing the Offshore industry with innovative and uniquely patented Irish technology that gave it global recognition and confirmed it as the world leader in the Metocean Industry.

The company has grown from a small outfit in 1999, working solely for the Irish market, to a thriving company in 2009, with a skilled work force operating worldwide from its offices in Aberdeen, Scotland, Houston, Texas and Ennis, Ireland.

Nowcasting Weather established itself through providing high resolution forecasting tools to the major companies in the Offshore Oil & Gas, the Construction companies, the Fast Ferries, and the Governmental Bodies around the world. Today, Nowcasting has operations in every basin from the North Sea to the Gulf of Mexico, West Africa, South America, the Mediterranean, Sakhalin Island, and Asia.

Making the announcement, Dr. Mark White, CEO of Nowcasting said, "We are delighted that our customers over the past 10 years have enthusiastically embraced our technology and fresh approach to provide weather forecasting solutions. One of our key differentiators is that our comprehensive range of Metocean services has proven to significantly improve efficiency, planning and safety.

"In these 10 years, we have put in place the necessary foundation to launch the next phase of our growth. Our Vision is to become the world's 'one stop shop' in Metocean solutions. I am confident that Nowcasting Weather has the necessary technology, skills and management capabilities to achieve this Vision and emerge as one of the most successful Metocean companies globally," he added.

"When we introduced Nowcasting Pro, we had quite a battle on our hands introducing a new technology, a new approach to weather forecasting; in fact a whole new operational planning tool. One of our biggest achievements has been to grow the overall weather market through our core product: Nowcasting Pro. This year we are delighted to be releasing the latest, most up-to-date and feature rich version, Nowcasting Pro 6, to celebrate our 10th birthday!"

Nowcasting Weather is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the company with several events. As part of the celebration, the Company will have a reception on its stand at Offshore Europe 2009 in Aberdeen, Scotland.
