The North Irish Sea Array (NISA) offshore wind farm project is currently engaged in a benthic survey campaign off the coast of North Co Dublin, Meath and Louth.

Similar to the survey conducted last autumn, the campaign involves the deployment of benthic grab and drop-down video equipment from a survey vessel within the bounds of the proposed array area, and is expected to be completed by next Monday 9 May, weather permitting.

Survey works are being conducted by the survey vessel Husky (callsign 2EQI7). As this vessel is restricted in its ability to manoeuvre when surveying, due to the deployment of the grab sampler, other vessels are requested to keep a wide berth. A fisheries liaison officer is aboard the vessel for the duration of the survey campaign.

Contact details, a map and coordinates of the survey area can be found in Marine Notice No 23 of 2022, attached below.
