Hydroacoustic Monitoring Services
48 NORTH provides consulting expertise for all stages of environmental reviews and assessments of hydroacoustic noise related to offshore infrastructure development.
We understand the laws, regulations, and requirements of regulatory agencies on the one hand and the realities of in-water construction constraints on the other.
Our team can provide expert consultation from project conceptualization and budgeting, conduct the predictive acoustic modelling necessary to begin the permitting process,conduct the acoustical field monitoring for pile driving operations,support the development of any required federal consultations and can lead stakeholder liaison services with state or federal regulatory agencies.
We can assist a project team to find a synergy between meeting environmental regulatory requirements and operational constraints. We enable our clients to design and execute their in-water construction operations,while minimizing environmental impact and complying with all pertinent regulatory and environmental permit requirements.
Our services span all stages of environmental reviews and assessments related to underwater acoustics, allowing us to become involved at all stages of a project or the assessment process.
48 NORTH monitored the hydroacoustics resulting from production pile driving for permitted threshold distances for Gulf Sturgeon. We used real time hydroacoustic data to assist in fine tuning effectiveness of bubble curtains during pile driving activities.
