Applied Acoustics’ key role in windfarm site selection

Applied Acoustics’ key role in windfarm site selection

Guest post: Mrs Sue Meeken, Applied Acoustic Engineering Ltd

 

Applied Acoustics supplies key products used in windfarm site characterisation surveys that collect data on the sub-seafloor geology such as sediment stratigraphy, rocky boulders and buried hazards. Such crucial seabed information will determine the optimum windfarm site position as well as the best cable route to shore.

“The selection of suitable sites for offshore wind development is an extremely complex issue that takes into account many factors including water depth limitations, environmental restrictions and the potential maximum distance from onshore assets. However, one of the critical elements in site selection for these installations are geological restrictions, and this is an area where the expertise of Applied Acoustic Engineering (AAE) is helping to shape the landscape of the industry.”
