SMI & Seawork Partnership Logo

SMI are pleased to announce a short webinar series focused on improved vessel efficiency and sustainability in the run up to the Seawork exhibition in June. Delivered by leading experts from industry and academia, the series will cover topics such as the impact of the new regulations and guidance, vessel integration and underwater radiated noise.

Underwater Radiated Noise: An unheard emission

The term “Clean Maritime” addresses all pollution sources into the ocean, one lesser known but incredibly influential source is noise pollution, or Underwater Radiated Noise (URN). 

Whether it is engine noise from ships or pile driving for new offshore infrastructure URN can have a huge impact on marine life and cause permanent damage or initiate habitat loss. Some localised regulations are already in place such as in Vancouver in Canada, but it is now being discussed on a global stage at the IMO with guidance documents having been updated earlier this year.

This session will discuss the engineering solutions to the challenge including, how we can take best practice from other sectors, cutting edge academic research generating novel approaches, how we can capture more data on commercial vessel noise, and how to design better components including understanding how electrical noise can create URN.
