bubble curtain support
Bubble Curtain Operations are the modern approved method of subsea acoustic environmental protection. A pipeline is laid on the seabed surrounding the noise source (i.e. dangerous noise levels such as foundation piling operations) and air is then pumped through the pipe via small, evenly spaced nozzles into the water.
Air bubbles rise up from the seabed to the surface creating a curtain of bubble. Sound waves are ‘caught’ in the curtain, reducing noise travel by up to 80%.
Atlantic Discovery has the deck space and the rear pipe chute, ideal for bubble curtain equipment mobilisation and pipe deployment.
