JASCO’s Underwater Noise Measurement for Block Island OWF

JASCO Applied Sciences, under subcontract to Tetra Tech, is providing underwater acoustic measurement and monitoring services to Deepwater Wind during the installation of the Block Island offshore wind farm.

JASCO is conducting field data acquisition and subsequent analysis and interpretation for short- and long-term studies of noise from pile driving and related construction activities. The work is supported by staff from one of JASCO’s USA offices, located in Silver Spring, Maryland, the company informed.

This engagement is part of environmental marine acoustics studies that JASCO is performing off the eastern coast of North America, where the company has deployed recording instruments from the tip of Labrador to Virginia. JASCO’s CEO Scott Carr said: “Being selected for involvement in this project reflects the valuable knowledge, services, and systems JASCO can provide to support offshore wind, tidal, and wave energy projects.”

JASCO’s acoustic monitoring studies off the Eastern Seaboard, in addition to helping ensure noise from human activities does not harm or interfere with the behavior of aquatic animals, contribute to the understanding of subsea ambient noise environments and of marine mammal habitats and migration routes in the region, the company added.
