Marine Offshore Renewables

Establishing offshore wind farms and wave energy harvesting equipment creates an ideal opportunity for SeaHive shelters to enhance the marine environment, and mitigate the disruption caused during their construction.

SeaHives provide hard surfaces for filter feeding animals to attach to, and shelter where fish and invertebrates can grow, mature and breed.

SeaHives are recommended to be attached to structures within 3m to 5m of the surface to optimize the planktonic food available for filter feeding animals living in and on the shelters.

Fish population analysis can be conducted using Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms to analyse still and video images of marine mammals, fish and invertebrates recorded using stereo-cameras mounted on SeaHive shelters.  The information from the AI analysis can be used to verify the increase in density and diversity of marine life around the renewable energy structures.
