A 'desk top' or FEED study is an extremely effective, and often essential, tool to focus early planning and engineering of any marine project. ETA has experience in every stage of project development from site identification and cable route planning through installation and service to decommissioning.

A 'desk top' or FEED (Front End Engineering Design) study is an extremely effective, and often essential, tool to focus early planning and engineering of any marine project. The study will gather and analyse existing data from public domain, scientific and commercial databases, and available project sources.

Outputs will inform environmental and engineering surveys, permits and consents, EIA activities, and construction planning, enabling an integrated approach.

Perhaps most significantly, the study will identify risks and opportunities at an early stage prior to commitment of costly resources. A clear understanding of the issues relevant to development is necessary to focus the study and to present clear and useful conclusions.

ETA has experience in every stage of project development from site identification and cable route planning through installation and service to decommissioning.  

As such we place emphasis on presenting data relevant to subsequent project activities, with clear justification of conclusions, traceable to data sources and archived information.

Desk studies are performed with the aid of GIS and CAD software, with outputs available in most common file formats.

Reports are produced in both hard copy and electronic formats.
