Bubble Curtain Support Vessel
About: 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 Enterprise is fitted with the winch equipment and high pressure compressors capable of delivering the compressed and and laying/recovering the subsea pipeline. Another task that can be offered simultaneously with the offshore accommodation capability for example.
