Study of the impact of the LNG terminal project in the Port of Dunkirk

Backed by EDF, GRTgaz and the Autonomous Port of Dunkirk, the construction of the LNG terminal and its pier represents an investment of 1.5 billion euros and will be built on the Clipon site. Although the site’s environment is significantly marked by existing industrial activity, the nearby natural areas present ecological issues highlighted by preliminary studies (2007-2009). These issues required the assistance of an ecologist to monitor the work.

For this project, we provided fauna and flora expertise, analysed alternatives, evaluated impacts, proposed measures, prepared the application file for an exemption for destruction of protected species, participated in the public meetings, integrated the environmental requirements in the specifications for construction firms, analysed the relevance of the technical provisions proposed by the agent and monitored the site.
