In 1977, WWT began with a few meteorologists striving to provide offshore forecasts for the oil and gas industry. Within 40 years, WWT has grown from what once was a four-man team, to a trusted global metocean business providing forecasts and hindcasts for every major oil basin.
In addition to our daily operations, WWT has supported unique forecasts for:
- The U.S.’s first offshore wind farm near Rhode Island
- Tall ship races throughout several regions of Europe
- Weather analysis for the area where the Costa Concordia tipped over offshore Italy
- Weather analysis for Tycoon, that ran aground near Christmas Island
“I feel all people on our staff have valuable input,” says WWT Senior Meteorologist Marshall Wickman, who has spent over 35 years with the company. “We pay attention to detail in all we do for our customers and we make each client feel very important to us, because they are.”
Forty years is an important milestone to celebrate where we’ve been and to reaffirm our commitment to the future. From all of us here at WWT, we’d like to thank our loyal and dependable clients for their business over the last 40 years. We look forward to providing you accurate, trustworthy forecasts for years to come!
