Onslow Marine Support Base – Dredge Monitoring

O2 Marine is currently engaged to undertake all dredge monitoring and management for a 1M m3 dredging project in Onslow, WA. O2 Marine are providing telemetered water quality monitoring at nine locations and Near-Real Time (NRT) satellite imagery analysis services to ensure compliance with EPA conditions during dredging. Installed equipment and online data management services provided by O2 Marine offer a simple, effective tool for dredge management. Dredge management is currently ongoing, however when approved, the Deputy Chairman of the EPA commended the dredge management approach, stating:

“The proponent incorporated contemporary and locally relevant dredging science from the Western Australian Marine Science Institution into its predictions and proposed management of the project’s impacts. This means we had a high level of confidence during the assessment.”
