In order to satisfy legislative obligations, our marine research services can help clients with the following steps in the consenting process for the development of offshore sites:
- Scoping of potential site-specific issues
- Baseline survey of existing marine environment to inform Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) and identification of potential impacts
- Advice on mitigation of likely impacts
- Design of assessment of impact of development before, during and after construction, during operation and decommissioning
Our marine research services are used to inform strategic environmental assessments (EAs) and EIAs as well as site selection decisions. Our applied marine mammal expertise is relevant across a variety of sectors with interests in marine developments.
