This article presents a metocean modelling methodology using a Markov-switching autoregressive model to produce stochastic wind speed and wave height time series, for inclusion in marine risk planning software tools. By generating a large number of stochastic weather series that resemble the variability in key metocean parameters, probabilistic outcomes can be obtained to predict the occurrence of weather windows, delays and subsequent operational durations for specific tasks or offshore construction phases. To cope with the variation in the offshore weather conditions at each project, it is vital that a stochastic weather model is adaptable to seasonal and inter-monthly fluctuations at each site, generating realistic time series to support weather risk assessments. A model selection process is presented for both weather parameters across three locations, and a personnel transfer task is used to contextualise a realistic weather window analysis. Summarising plots demonstrate the validity of the presented methodology and that a small extension improves the adaptability of the approach for sites with strong correlations between wind speed and wave height. It is concluded that the overall methodology can produce suitable wind speed and wave time series for the assessment of marine operations, yet it is recommended that the methodology is applied to other sites and operations, to determine the method’s adaptability to a wide range of offshore locations.
