Marine Source Heat pump impact and effects?

Lots of laser scanning work of the area to see whats moving. gravels, stones even smaller sediment. here is what a laser scan of the pump house area looks like

Now that its ready and as part of the National Trust Marine Source Heat Pump research we have been working closely with the Bangor University School of Oceanographic science under the SEACAMS project to understand any potential impacts even at a microscopic level the new Marine Source Heat Pump might have on the Marine Environment. Some of the early results on gravel and sediment movements are now starting to come through and its look very good i.e. no impact…early days! But we are also looking at detailed ecological effects as well. Much more to come. The images to date have been stunning science/art!

two comparison scans of the casons covering the main sea pipes. these are ealy scans showing no movement at all in the pipes. some slight sediment movement which was to be expected

3D view of the pipe cover casons. the scan picks up every detail in the area and they are monitoring any change

The area in front of the mansion. surreal looking images!
