MMO and PAM support for geophysical operations
Mitigating risks to marine mammals and other protected species is vital for compliance in successful offshore wind projects, as well as ensuring that operations have the minimum possible impact on protected species.
Through close collaboration with our trusted partners, we offer deep expertise in providing effective mitigation solutions to our clients. This includes the deployment of marine mammal observers (MMOs) and passive acoustic monitoring (PAM).
By having qualified MMOs on board, we are able to monitor marine life in real time, thereby mitigating potential environmental impacts and ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements. PAM goes a step further by capturing underwater acoustic data, allowing for accurate mapping of the subsea environment where visual coverage is limited or where continuous monitoring is necessary.
