5 1- CREOCEAN - KEY ELEMENTS SCE GROUP CREOCEAN belongs to SCE GROUP which provides a global offer in land and environment development results: SCE: 17,8 M with 210 persons, CREOCEAN: 6.2 M with 44 persons 5

6 1.2 - CREOCEAN's Background and commitment History In 1948, after the Second World War, young French scientists decided to gather their skills to establish a team dedicated to the oceanographic research. Their idea was that oceanology is not a separate science, but a federation of cooperating disciplines requiring diverse and complementary skills. So more than thirty-one members, with various origins and competences, constituted the first Committee of Honour. Among these members, put under the presidency of Edouard Herriot, this committee gathered some names called to an international notability: Jacques Yves Cousteau, Théodore Monod, Jean Rouch,. Under these promising patronages, the Centre of REsearch and Oceanic studies (CREO) was born. It became a French limited company in 1984, with IFREMER (French Research Institute for sea exploitation) as major shareholder. During a decade, CREOCEAN received a strong technology transfer from the public institute. Sixty years later, we are proud to carry this inheritance: respecting the scientific ethics, we keep the idea of multidisciplinary skills necessary for the understanding of coastal and offshore marine environment. During all these years, accompanying the technical and scientific knowledge, we follow the evolution of societies within the framework of the Sustainable Development Commitment The development of coastal areas is growing as a major concern all over the world. It is widely recognized that the development of urban, industrial, agricultural or touristic activities close to or in the sea needs to be managed in accordance with environmental preservation. Based on its long-term worldwide experience and multidisciplinary scientific approach, CREOCEAN has developed a functional vision of Coastal Areas Sustainable Development. CREOCEAN s commitment is to provide decision-aid tools for the development of sustainable coastal activities in harmony with their human and natural surroundings. For each case our answer is the cross result of three concerns: The preservation of human and natural heritage : rare species, biodiversity and ecosystems value, coastal and submarine landscapes as well as potential for human use require comprehensive management. The harmonious development of coastal activities: each urban, harbor, industrial, agricultural or touristic development may affect surrounding activities. We aim at avoiding harmful impacts and conflicts between activities, towards a rational management of coastal and marine resources. The development of sustainable facilities and activities: coastal areas have specific characteristics that must be taken into account for each new development. The success of some activities even necessitates the environment to be kept in pristine condition. 6

7 1.3 - CREOCEAN in France CREOCEAN has agencies all along the French coast and in overseas French territories. CREOCEAN's headquarter is in La Rochelle and the agencies in: Montpellier, La Seyne-sur -Mer, Nantes and Caen. The overseas agencies are located in French Guiana, Martinique and Tahiti International development Since its inception, CREOCEAN has undertaken many studies linked to the coastline and marine environments. CREOCEAN has been involved in studies concerning the gathering and processing of data, baseline studies, impact studies, analyses of the environment in general and development schemes in the following zones: - Mediterranean sea, - North and South Atlantic Ocean, - English Channel, - North Sea, - Caribbean Sea, - Red Sea, - Indian Ocean, - Middle-East. In order to ensure a strong international development, CREOCEAN has created agencies in the Middle East (Doha and Abu Dhabi) and in North Africa (Morocco and Mauritania). 7

8 2 - CAPABILITY STATEMENT The specific strength of CREOCEAN's capabilities lies in its close integration of environmental, planning and engineering services, mixing its multidisciplinary staff potential. For each project, CREOCEAN is able to assemble the range of professional services most suitable to the client's need. 8

9 2.1 - Environment monitoring and auditing CREOCEAN offers a good experience in environmental monitoring studies. Marine investigations involve the identification and characterisation of effluents, determination of pollutants and environmental effects. CREOCEAN's expertise in chemistry, toxicology and biology (insuring as well sediments quality, water quality, marine flora and fauna characterisation and hydrodynamics), offers a very comprehensive know how to design and conduct environmental investigations in oil and chemical industry, industrial plants, mining industries. Those types of expertise include Environment Baseline Surveys (EBS) and Environmental Impact Assessment Studies (EIAS). 9

10 2.2 - Impact studies and statutory documents CREOCEAN's experts offer a wide experience in statutory document drafting. Legally speaking, a technical support must be provided in order to determine the level of concern associated with a project in regards to the environment. Impact studies, and many other statutory documents must be drawn up in fields such as marine aggregates extraction, underwater dumping sites, offshore or coastal oil and gas development, Marine and aquatic ecology CREOCEAN proposes the know how of several engineers to predict, monitor and assess immediate and long term ecological changes associated with human activities. The firm's services cover both preliminary and comprehensive biological inventories (benthic fauna, planktonic and fish communities). This capacity is used to provide baseline data for impact assessment of dredging, dredged material disposal, submarine pipe laying, wastewater outfalls, oil exploration and production, aquaculture... To achieve those expertises, CREOCEAN has access to a large range of instrumentation and sampling equipment for marine biological studies (grabs, CTD probes, sampling bottles, diving equipment...). 10

11 2.4 - Environment chemistry and toxicology Government and industries must face increasing requirement for understanding the fate and possible effects of contaminant chemical in the environment. CREOCEAN's engineers and environmental scientists are experienced in environmental contaminants and problem definition and can provide a technical support to determine the level of concern associated with a contaminant on water quality. CREOCEAN can offer comprehensive experience in toxicity testing for routine monitoring and assessment in aquatic environments Oceanographic and geophysical data gathering CREOCEAN is able to ensure the most efficient handling of quality meteorological and oceanographic surveys, bathymetry, depth sounding and cartography. Used as themselves for specific needs, those data can also be used to define characteristics of areas before any project of offshore or onshore planning. The range of material enables the measurement at sea of many natural elements: currents and wave, weather study, bathymetry and sea floor surveys by side-scan sonar (Dowty and Klein 3000 side scan sonar). Those data are used for construction of ports, dredging operation, submarine pipe laying, wastewater outfalls into the sea, coastal erosion and beach nourishment. To w fish 11 SAND

12 2.6 - Hydrodynamic modelling CREOCEAN has extensive expertise for modelling the physical processes in coastal areas, estuaries, lakes... and this tool is applied to all the projects that require the capability to implement calculations to anticipate and manage the functioning of a system. CREOCEAN developed a range of models and can produce 2D and 3D models, flow and surge simulation models (slope acceleration, wind stress and coriolis), sediment transport models, advection dispersion models and contaminant dispersion models. Different types of application can be established: circulation models of the ocean dynamics coastal water to evaluate the impact of wastewater outfalls on marine water quality, harbour oscillation used to design coastal structures, hydrodynamics and water quality modelling for coastal development, and impact of coastal infrastructures onto the water quality Current speed (m/s) Above Intertidal areas Current vector (m/s)

13 2.7 - Environment technologies CREOCEAN proposes the capacity to design infrastructures taking into consideration environmental constraints such as currents, tide, wave motion, sediment transport. Engineers, therefore, can design pipes for wastewater treatment plants, dikes, hulks, floating landing stage, all infrastructure located on the shoreline and may be subject to natural environmental conditions. natural environmental conditions Economy in coastal areas CREOCEAN can implement: - Regional or local development studies, master plans - Opportunity and market studies - Financial and management audits - Feasibility studies (technical, management, financing, legal aspects) - Conception and programming of projects, business plans, management - Marketing and communication 13

14 3- STAFF AND ORGANISATION Organisation and management CREOCEAN is employing 44 persons which include 30 environmental specialists in all marine fields. CREOCEAN is organised to answer to the requirement of a wide range of projects types and sizes. Projects are assigned on a task force basis, with each being handled by a project manager who has fully authority to provide comprehensive control of operation and resources, and is directly accountable for accomplishment of project objectives. Experienced and qualified personnel are assigned to tasks compatible to their field of expertise. To approach the projects in the more operative way, CREOCEAN has clearly defined five homogeneous areas of activities: 1. Statutory and impact studies 2.
