Time-sensitive surveys play a critical part in the development of offshore wind farms, and Source Galileo understand the importance of ensuring all necessary data is available to the project team when its needed.

Data from the survey will be used to inform the offshore wind farm design and subsequent Environmental Impact Assessments related to offshore ornithology and marine mammals, ensuring effective environmental mitigations are put in place where required.
