Description

This report presents a brief initial assessment of the airborne noise levels as a function of
range that may occur during offshore impact piling at Greater Gabbard. This will involve
driving a 6.5 m diameter pile using an IHC-S-600 hammer. The IHC Hydrohammer is a
hydraulic pile driver that uses an enclosed system encasing the top of the pile.
