SeaWorld Abu Dhabi


The project comprises a SeaWorld theme-based water park along with a rescue, rehabilitation and research center supporting the local environment and other additional facilities.

AESG provided a comprehensive Preliminary Environmental Review (PER) to satisfy EAD requirements for the Environmental Permitting process. This PER was focused on the intake and outfall layout options to minimise environmental impacts in a sensitive area comprising mangroves and saltmarshes.

Three outfall options were modelled using a hydrodynamic and flushing study in order to recommend the most environmentally friendly option, and suitable mitigation measures for each option.
