Marine Infrastructure, Ports & Harbours

Our team of marine consultants provide expert support to off-shore and near-shore development projects as well as dredging and aggregate extraction operations. We offer marine survey and sample analysis, development consent and licensing support, and marine environment monitoring.

We understand the complexity of environmental regulation within the marine environment. We partner our clients to deliver cost effective solutions to environmental issues that respect progress and the natural world. We support clients on marine infrastructure projects, port and harbour developments and during dredging and aggregate extraction operations.

Thomson can cover all environmental issues associated with your project, from subtidal and intertidal to onshore considerations. We take care of all stages from desk-based design, to planning and delivery of marine licence compliance. Our service offering means you can streamline the management of the environmental aspects of your next project with one supplier.

We help clients obtain licences and consents for offshore renewable energy, decommissioning, and other marine constructions, oil and gas extraction, sewage outfalls, fish farms, navigational dredging and disposal, beach recharging, aggregate extraction and all near-shore developments. We can advise on dredge disposal options, including beneficial use schemes and disposal impacts for licensed sites.

Our suite of services includes marine surveys and sample analysis, including faunal identification and sediment particle size and sediment chemical assessment against Cefas standards. Our expertise also covers advice on invasive non-native species and protected species in the marine environment, as well as Water Framework Directive and impact assessments.

As the leading independent environmental consultancy, our focus is on helping you obtain successful project outcomes. We are trusted, agile, innovative, and responsive to client’s needs. We support you when you deliver the most challenging projects and we have a track record of doing so, at scale.
