Noise Mitigation

marine mammal monitoring

Cetacean monitoring personnel and equipment are utilised aboard client vessels for offshore activities where underwater noise is generated. Marine mammals are protected in the UK, and mitigation measures should be employed during operations that may cause harm, such as:

  • seismic survey
  • wind farm construction
  • piling operations
  • underwater explosives
  • underwater cutting
  • harbour expansion works
  • bridge construction works
