Transporting and decommissioning of infrastructure

When transporting or decommissioning Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) infrastructure it is a legal requirement to be aware of environmentally threatening biofouling on the infrastructure. 

Guidelines for the removal of biofouling and for movements of marine infrastructure are in place to protect the marine environment from the trans-location of potentially harmful non-native marine organisms. Ensuring your device is free of potentially invasive non-native species before decommissioning and relocating the infrastructure is vital to protecting the marine environment.

The Centre provides specialist advice to support MRE device operators during the mobilisation  decommissioning phase to ensure that you can operate with confidence and demonstrate due diligence to third party stakeholders in terms of biofouling management.
