O2 MARINE is a highly specialised marine environmental consulting business and founding company of the O2M Group. The O2 MARINE team comprises marine scientists and ecologists who specialise in projects where a specific risk to the marine environment has been identified and MUST be effectively managed to mitigate impacts. O2 MARINE understands that these risks pose a threat, not only to realisation of project objectives, but also to irreparable damage to the marine environment.

The technical focus of our business allows us to hone methods, develop IP, understand legislation and build relationships with regulatory authorities that multi-discipline providers cannot. We pride ourselves on being both mariners and marine scientists, ensuring that practicality and common sense are always critical factors in our approach to our project delivery.
We are industry-recognised leaders in the fields of marine environmental impact assessment and monitoring, port-specific environmental compliance monitoring, marine environmental management planning and approvals, dredging environmental management and marine fauna.
