EGS offers a complete project solution
and can assist in all aspects from the feasibility
study stage through to installation and beyond.
With a global target for the renewable sector to provide 60% of the world energy by 2070 and the EU targeting an increase in the proportion of energy consumption from renewable sources to 20% by 2020, the current focus is on the rapid development of the renewable power generation capacity up to a scale that will meet these targets.
Desk Top Studies & Environmental Impact AssessmentBy assimilating existing data from various sources, including published literature; EGS can build a baseline picture of the potential site-related hazards and constraints. This will allow for optimal design of the facility and assist the planning of the installation work.
Information included in the study can be tailored to meet site-specific requirements and would typically include:
An EGS differentiator lies in the fact that typically more than 90% of our staff are full time employees with less than 10% from the freelance market, this enables staff continuity from project inception to the issuing of the final deliverables
Project Management & Client Representation
EGS can offer full project management of site investigations, cable route studies and the EIA process. Our highly qualified staff can also act as client representatives for fieldwork programs undertaken by third parties.
Environmental Impact Assessment
Preliminary environmental studies are a useful framework within which planning and installation considerations can interact with the environmental constraints. Through this process, essential for all the developers, it is possible to identify optimal solutions that avoid or limit adverse effects to the facility and the environment.
Furthermore, Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) studies are required in the permitting process at each stage of an offshore facility lifeline, from pre-construction to decommissioning, through installation and operations.
EGS can carry out cost accurate and effective site surveys and investigations, producing detailed assessment reports that can be used in the planning, design and construction of offshore marine and seabed installations and in the routing of the export cables.
EGS offers marine construction contractors various options for construction barge positioning including stand-alone vessel positioning and remote anchor management systems.
In addition to high accuracy surface vessel positioning, EGS owns a range of acoustic tracking and measurement equipment that can be seamlessly integrated into the barge or installation vessel’s survey systems.
EGS offers database management services to optimise servicing of your assets and facilitate future developments of your offshore infrastructures. EGS employs a number of GIS specialists and uses various GIS software to suit your needs.
