Members of our environmental team have significant experience of the environmental issues associated with many of the UK offshore wind farm developments.

Specific expertise includes underwater noise modelling and impact assessments of which Genesis is a leading provider. Using our proprietary noise model we have the capability to undertake noise modelling for sites across the globe based on species specific audiograms to produce impact assessments with both weighted (dB ht) impact level and Sound Exposure Level (SEL) outputs. Results from the modelling are combined with GIS, visual aids and CAD graphics and assessed by our marine ecology experts. In addition, our environmental team has unrivalled experience in undertaking habitat regulation assessments and associated appropriate assessments for renewable developments having been involved in this aspect for the majority of the UK offshore wind farms.

Genesis has also been a key player in many of the major large scale CCS projects in Europe with technical specialists in the capture and transportation of CO2, as well as associated safety and environmental aspects.
