The acoustic and visual monitoring (called PAM, Passive Acoustic Monitoring) conducted by our MMO (Marine Mammal Observer) is active 24 hours a day and,  in the event of a sighting or acoustic detection, mitigation measures are adopted, in real time, to prevent any harmful effects noise pollution from construction activities on the species of cetaceans within 1 mile from the platform.
