The project wants to confirm the existence of individual waves of exceptional wave height or abnormal shape (rogue waves). New design criteria considering the impact of rogue waves on ships and offshore constructions are to be derived. The innovation is the combination of oceanographic knowledge, ocean wave data resources and theoretical considerations with new approaches to vessel and marine construction design and operation. It addresses the needs of coastal engineers and port designers/operators in terms of the influence and impact of extreme waves. One of the objective is therefore to provide a quality-based metocean information product for the benefit of both high sea and coastal zone operating industry and authorities.
