  • The demand for renewable energy has led to construction of offshore wind farms with high-power turbines, and many more wind farms are being planned for the shallow waters of the world's marine habitats. [...] Key Result Construction involves many types of activities that can generate high sound pressure levels, and pile-driving seems to be the noisiest of all.Expand Abstract
