Thomson Ecology and its marine division Thomson Unicomarine will be exhibiting on Stand 74 at the 13th Global Offshore Wind 2014 conference and exhibition at the SECC, Glasgow, on 11-12 June 2014 to discuss the company’s global capability with delegates.
Daniel Bastreri, principal marine consultant, is joining the team at the show to meet delegates with a particular interest in the EIA (environmental impact assessment) aspects of the offshore wind industry. Before joining Thomson Unicomarine, Daniel was a marine environmental impact assessor at Cefas providing authoritative evidence-based scientific advice to the MMO and other government departments on the potential impacts on the marine environment from proposed offshore wind farms.
The marine team comprises many highly qualified specialists who together have delivered thousands of projects in over 50 countries. Their experience allows them to work in all marine environments, from foreshore to deep sea, and to offer survey and analysis services for marine benthos, fish and shellfish, as well as video and stills, and particle size analysis. The resources at Letchworth, Hertfordshire, include one of the largest benthic laboratories in Europe, with world-leading experts in marine benthic taxonomy.
The wider Thomson group of companies has extensive experience of successfully delivering the onshore ecological elements of many offshore wind farms including surveys, licensing and mitigation, as well as ecological contracting. Commercial Manager, Mike Harris, will be demonstrating interactive geospatial mapping of ecological data to delegates at the stand.
