The offshore wind industry has ambitious targets for delivering energy to the grid by 2020. This challenging timeline requires all engineering and environmental risks to be identified and quantified. Partrac assists the industry in managing its risks by providing data and survey and interpretive reports.
We have developed a strong track record in offshore renewables - we support clients throughout the development of their projects from oceanographic surveys, licensing, environmental baseline surveys through to geo-technical investigations, operation real-time metocean data and post-installation monitoring.
Partrac provides the following services to the offshore wind industry:
- Metocean/oceanographic survey
- High resolution bathymetric & geophysical surveys
- Benthic survey
- Baseline environmental survey
- Marine mammal survey
- Sediment & scour monitoring

Ormonde Offshore Wind Farm - Sediment Monitoring
"RPS Energy contracted Partrac Consulting Ltd. to undertake a post-construction suspended sediment survey at the Vattenfall operated Ormonde wind farm in the Irish Sea. Partrac performed well on the project and kept RPS updated throughout the survey as, due to the changing weather conditions, their survey strategy was constantly updated to meet to the demands of our project.
I found that their staff had a solid level scientific knowledge and competence that was clearly evident; any queries I raised about the survey were readily explained in a rapid and clear fashion. The final report was well written to a good standard with a number of useful plots, diagrams and clear, concise conclusions detailing the suspended sediment levels throughout the water column."

Moray Firth Round 3 Zone - Metocean Surveys:
"Moray Offshore Renewables Limited (MORL) has been happy with the quality of the service provided by Partrac in the initial oceanographic campaign stage and in the further campaign extension. The dataset recorded has a paramount importance for environmental and engineering assessment purposes.
We hope to continue our relationship in the near future."
