Acoustic mitigation devices are one of industry-standard solutions for preventing adverse effects of marine infrastructural development works, such as physical interaction with construction equipment or exposure to high levels of underwater sound, they are able to temporarily remove wildlife from a project site and potentially harmful activities.
