Marine Environmental Solutions Limited (MES) has been awarded a contract from an unnamed client to provide Marine Mammal Observation (MMO), and Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) personnel and equipment.
The period of services runs from 19thJuly 2019 until operations are complete, with the date of completion to be confirmed.
Looking forward to a successful partnership
MMO and PAM personnel and equipment are deployed on-board client vessels to keep a watch for any marine mammals entering an area of operations. Personnel are required to accurately record their range and movements in accordance with JNCC guidelines.
MES Managing Director, Steven Alexander said: “This is an exciting contract win for MES, and we are delighted with the confidence placed in our services. We look forward to a successful partnership on this and future projects.”
Marine mammals are protected in the UK, and companies operating in UKCS waters take their responsibilities seriously. MMO, PAM and ADD is a simple, low-cost mitigation measure that ensures companies comply with regulations for the monitoring and protection of marine life.
