Benthic Ecology


EMU Ltd was commissioned by Centrica (Lincs) Limited, acting for Centrica Renewable Energy to undertake a geophysical and seabed habitat assessment of the proposed Lincs offshore windfarm area, located to the east of Skegness and the windfarm cable route extending from the windfarm area into the Wash.

The aim of the survey was to determine and report on the seabed conditions and the presence or absence of biogenic reefs across the site and cable route.  The survey was performed with swath Bathymetry, sidescan sonar imaging, magnetometry, Acoustic Ground Discrimination System (AGDS) and the collection of seabed samples and video.
