In partnership with C-MAP's Integrated Maritime Suite
(IMS) for vessel optimization and Oceanweather's 38+
year global wind and wave hindcast (GROW),
TOWSIM is a tool to develop Trans-Ocean Criteria for
transporting offshore structure on a barge, towing
an FPSO, drill ship and other floating vessel.
tailored modeling of the barge or self propelled ship
are used to predict vessel speed performance and motion
responses in wind and waves.
years of validated Global wind and wave hindcast database
including tropical cyclones.
wind, sea and swell information on a 0.5 degree grid.

detailed TOWSIM report will include the following
information based on various seasons and/or routes.
Exceedance and Probability Density
vessel motion responses, encountered environmental
conditions, trip duration, and associated criteria
for each simulated passage are compiled to show statistics
including Monthly Exceedance, Probability Densities,
and Cumulative and Exceedance Probabilities.
Diagrams and Spectra
en route such as wind speed, direction, sea, swell
height period and direction, vessel pitch, roll angles,
vertical, lateral accelerations at various hourly
intervals for each simulated passage are compiled
to provide the following statistics:
Monthly Wind Speed vs. Wind Direction, Wind Speed
vs. Significant Wave Height, Roll vs. Pitch Angles,
Vertical vs. Lateral Accelerations, Significant Wave
Height vs. Peak Period
probabilities along the route
Mean directional wave spectra from sea and swell parameters
are utilized for fatigue and long term response predictions
along the route
