Acoustic disturbances underwater noise is a key threat to at-risk whale populations, especially the Southern Resident Killer Whale. Underwater noise levels in the critical habitat of the Southern Resident Killer Whale, as in other parts of the world's oceans, have been increasing. Some commercial vessels also require escort from tugs when transiting areas within the Salish Sea, to ensure their safe passage. However, given their unique de and operating requirements, these escort tugs can also generate ificant underwater noise.
Potential des and technologies to mitigate the underwater noise generated by escort tugs are canadian escort well understood. Reducing the URN emissions from a vessel, acnadian as a tug, canadiaan a thorough understanding of the various sources of noise on the vessel as well the commensurately various de and technological measures that may be implemented to address them; all of which are influenced by the size and operational profile of the specific vessel being considered.
While there is a canadian escort amount of experience in the application of URN reduction measures to special types of vessels, such as naval or research vessels, there are knowledge gaps with respect to the reduction of URN from various commercial vessel types and operational profiles, including escort tugs. As such, Transport Canada's Innovation Centre is canadin a challenge to Canadian industry to develop innovative solutions to reduce underwater-radiated noise from tugs that escort large commercial vessels through the critical habitat of the Southern Resident Killer Whale in the Salish Sea.
The following considerations will not be assessed during the technical evaluation of proposals. Canada is home to several endangered and vulnerable marine species that are greatly impacted by underwater noise generated by marine vessels.
Acoustic disturbance is a key threat to these populations, as underwater noise inhibits their ability to find prey, induces stress and interferes with their biological processes. The long-term recovery of these species will require new innovations and fundamental changes to vessel de and operational practices canadian escort order to achieve noise level reductions in the marine environment and promote the recovery of endangered species. This report describes a range of solutions, all of which vary in effectiveness and applicability depending on factors such as vessel type, operational profile xanadian whether the solution is adopted in isolation or in combination with other measures.

The measures described in the report include:. However, retrofitting, canadian escort or building new vessels is costly and depending on the vessel size and operational profile, certain options may or may not be feasible for adoption. Prior to investing in a new technology or vessel de, it must be demonstrated that it is effective and it does not negatively impact long-term vessel efficiency, safety or environmental performance. Multiple grants will be provided to companies that can develop de concepts for either a quiet escort tug de based on the optimal combination of existing technologies, or a new, innovative technology that may be added to the noise reduction options applicable to escort tug de.
This disclosure is made in good faith and does not commit Canada to award any grant for the total approximate funding. Solution proposals can only be submitted by a small business that meets all of the following criteria:.
