Plexus mobilised a multi-disciplinary team of VIA, visualisation, coastal zone management, ESIA, community relations and environmental permitting experts. Plexus reviewed the project concept and visited the project location. The visit featured a detailed review of existing aerial photography and mapping of the area, coupled with extensive stakeholder engagement with fishing communities and tourism representatives.
A range of locations from which the project would potentially be visible were identified and a visual sensitivity map was prepared which formed the basis for technical recommendations on project siting, design and stakeholder engagement. Plexus also benchmarked best practices in the area of VIA and prepared a review of comparable projects around the world.
