Abstract: 

This report constitutes a review of the monitoring methods and reporting of underwater noise and vibration generated by offshore wind farms (OWFs) around the UK. The aim of the review is to assess how well the monitoring reports conform to the conditions specified in the Food and Environment Protection Act (FEPA) licences; to highlight the key findings of the reports; and to suggest recommendations for improved monitoring strategies and reporting in the future.

 

There are currently eight UK OWFs for which noise monitoring data is available from various stages of the construction and post-construction process: Barrow, Burbo, Kentish Flats, North Hoyle, Scroby Sands, Gunfleet Sands, Lynn and Inner Dowsing.
