Knowing how marine life could possibly be influenced by construction activities starts by installing the right equipment. At various locations and at varying intervals, specialised C-pods (hydrophones) were installed that can pick up the sounds from passing mammals.
A read-out from the C-pods used by
Gemini at the end of June 2015, when
the monopiles were being constructed.
The dots indicate the presence of
harbour porpoises, seals and dolphins.

corrosion being tested in Antwerp, with the mock-up installation of the monopile and the transition piece.
Following the progress of the wind
park construction in real time. Using
state-of-the-art technology, the Gemini
organisation was able to follow the
operation on a smartphone, where the
different colours of the turbines display
their current status.
