Lightning Alert Service


We also monitor and analyze the lightning potential
Vento Maritime actively monitors for approaching thunderstorms and lightning strikes, making every effort to provide an alert 2 hours in advance before high risk of lightning occurs. This enables you to launch necessary precautions to improve safety at sea.
With this service we do not only consider detected lightning strikes, but we also monitor and analyze lightning potential of near future developing thunderstorms and communicate the risk by both phone and email.
The alert service procedure is developed in close cooperation with the world’s largest offshore wind developer.

Better than a stand alone automatic system
Don’t be satisfied with an automatic lightning detection system which for instance do not take the heading and speed of thunderstorms into account when dealing with safety at sea. These systems only alert based on historic lightning strikes instead of forecasting high-risk periods – and this may be too late.
Trained marine meteorologists make experienced decisions on the risk of lightning strikes and alert you as swiftly as possible. Our aim is to optimize your safety and optimize the use of weather windows by minimizing false alarms and raising the hit rate.
