Wessex Archaeology and Coastal Environments Inc (CEI) have joined forces to provide a suite of world-class marine archaeological and cultural resource services designed specifically to meet the needs of offshore renewables projects in the US market.
This month we’ll be at the AWEA Offshore WINDPOWER event in New York, talking to leading figures about developments in the industry, and meeting up with developers and survey companies to discuss how we can help them meet their permitting, consenting and planning requirements.
Wessex Archaeology is the market leader in the British offshore renewables sector, having provided essential input into the development of the UK’s offshore regulatory system over the last 15 years. Wessex has supplied archaeological services for over 90% of all the UK’s offshore windfarm schemes, and has experience at all stages from pre-planning and scoping through to post-construction monitoring. CEI specializes in cultural resource management using an interdisciplinary approach and has conducted underwater archaeology for 40 years; clients have included the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and its predecessor the Minerals Management Service (MMS).
Together, our offshore renewables team brings together unparalleled expertise and capacity in archaeology, geophysics and geoarchaeology, in combination with expertise on BOEM’s Guidelines for Providing Archaeological and Historic Property Information, offshore wind farm development and cultural resource permitting, and regulatory planning for Section 106 and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
If you’re at AWEA and would like to meet up to discuss our services over coffee, please don’t hesitate to say hello or drop us an email (contacts below).
