This report provides insight whether technologies are available that could be applied in the Netherlands if stricter regulations would be implemented to reduce impulsive underwater noise caused by pile driving and continuous underwater noise caused by shipping. Costs, benefits and the applicability of such technologies in the Netherlands are examined. Furthermore, a similar analysis is carried out for an hypothetical expansion of the MyBeach concept along the entire Dutch coast.
