Description

A consortium, lead by CMACS, was contracted to carry out a Stage 1 investigation to
investigate the following:
· The likely EMF emitted from a subsea power cable.
· A suggested method to measure EMF in the field, which could be applied by windfarm developers
or in future projects.
· Guidance on mitigation measures to reduce EMF.
· Consideration of the results for the next stage of investigation into the effects of EMF on electrosensitive
species.
