ITI Energy contracted Aquatera to devise a number of execution plans for the completion of various environmental impact assessments (EIAs) for the assessment, permitting and deployment of a hybrid wave and wind energy conversion device. The EIAs considered included both test-phase and commercial deployments.
This project provided Aquatera with the unique opportunity to consider the potential environmental interactions of both offshore wind turbines and wave energy converters in the same location.
Project outputs included:
Identification of all required baseline surveys and activities to be completed prior to the EIA of a hybrid installation
Execution plan for completing EIAs and producing a Environmental Statements for test phase and commercial deployments of a hybrid installation
Cost estimates and schedules for the EIA process required for the deployment of a hybrid offshore wind and wave device
