Developing human activity at sea opens up new possibilities for the global economy, but increases environmental pressures. However, developing use of the sea in harmony with marine ecosystems is a major challenge.
Quiet-Oceans meets that challenge by providing manufacturers, environmental research consultancies, public bodies and marine mammal protection organizations, with solutions for ocean noise forecasting, monitoring and reducing anthropogenic noise impact.
Quiet-Oceans works in partnership with the research community to help understanding the impact of underwater anthropogenic noise on aquatic life.

Quiet-Oceans is proud to announce the issue of the « Guide to the environmental impact evaluation of tidal stream technologies at sea : GHYDRO »
Quiet-oceans has taken the lead of the noise section. The main objective of this guide is to promote the environmental integration of a new type of construction at sea, for which there is very little feedback about the potential ecological impacts.
The European Commission has selected Quiet-Oceans as part of a european consortium led by DHI to conduct a study on the environmental impacts of noise, vibrations and electromagnetic emissions from marine renewables
This study will address the information gap by means of a large scale investigation including the environmental impacts of noise, vibrations and electromagnetic emissions covering the entire lifespan of marine renewable energy devices and adress the analysis of the norms and standards related to noise, vibrations and electromagnetic emissions from marine renewable energy systems.
