Product Intro

    Safely and temporarily deter marine life from offshore construction sites

    Our FaunaGuard system combines academically validated sound patterns with award winning acoustic transducers to create a temporary safe exclusion zone for marine wildlife during high energy events such as pile driving, underwater explosions or clearing oil spills.

    Environmental Benefits

    Protect marine life during offshore projects

    Offshore construction activities like pile driving and underwater explosions can cause deafness and other serious physical harm to local marine life if precautions are not taken.

    Our FaunaGuard acoustic deterrents safely target the hearing ranges of specific species – such as seals, porpoises or turtles –  to create temporary exclusion zones around the project site.

    Economic Benefits

    Reduce project downtime and delays

    Any instance of a protected marine species being spotted inside a designated exclusion zone can cause costly unexpected shutdowns and delays until the site is cleared.

    Our academically validated sound patterns target a variety of common species, and our acoustic hardware has withstood the harshest conditions in years of use in offshore and aquaculture industries.

    Target Species

    Cetaceans

    Our 50-300kHz FaunaGuard Porpoise module is used to temporarily move cetaceans to a safe exclusion zone. Use this if you need to deter porpoises, dolphins or whales.

    Target Species

    Seals

    Our 1-5kHz FaunaGuard Seal module is used to temporarily move pinnipeds to a safe exclusion zone. Use this if you need to deter grey or common seals.

    Target Species

    Turtles

    Our 100-400Hz FaunaGuard Turtle module is used to temporarily move turtles to a safe exclusion zone.

    Target Species

    Fish

    An ultra low frequency FaunaGuard Fish module targeting fish is currently in development. Contact us for more information.

    Case Study

    Safe zone for wind farm construction

    Van Oord were chosen to install 60 monopiles at a new 385-megawatt wind farm in the Baltic Sea. A key requirement was to avoid disrupting local marine life.

    They achieved that goal by deploying the FaunaGuard acoustic deterrent to safely and temporarily clear the construction site of marine mammals.
