Metocean Services International (MSI) is a global provider of oceanographic and meteorological (metocean) measurement services to the oil and gas industry, coastal engineers, dredging companies and port authorities.

MSI’s management group has more than 50 years’ experience in the maritime industry and is supported by a team of dedicated and experienced oceanographers, data processors and engineers.

Through its offices in Hobart and Cape Town – and using an extensive and growing resource of state-of-the-art equipment – MSI has conducted successful operations in more than 30 countries. MSI’s focus is the collection and processing of metocean data. We can deploy all equipment separately or integrate it into a larger metocean system. Where data is required in real-time, this is achieved by using cable, radio, GSM or satellite transmission systems.

Services include:

  • wave measurements
  • water level/tidal measurements
  • meteorological measurements
  • desktop studies
  • software and database development and hosting
  • project management
  • marine weather/route forecasting
  • environmental studies.
