Munitions and Explosives of Concern (MEC) Desktop Study
In support of Fugro Marine Services, Hana prepared a Munitions and Explosives of Concern (MEC) Desktop Study (DTS) for the U.S. Department of Interior’s (USDOI) Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) Renewable Energy Lease Number Outer Continental Shelf (OCS)-A 0486. The lease is located within the Rhode-Island Massachusetts (RI-MA) Wind Energy Area (WEA). The purpose of the MEC DTS was to identify areas where military activities using munitions may have impacted the environment by identifying historical and current munitions sources and estimating the potential distribution of MEC that could present an explosive hazard in the Study Area. The DTS included a Historical Records Review (HRR) and a MEC Risk Assessment.
