What do developers do to protect wildlife?

Studies are undertaken to fully understand and mitigate any possible impacts of offshore wind on seabirds and marine life. Wind farms have been found to help fish populations: turbines create artificial reefs, which provide an increase in fish habitat. Developers have developed techniques to minimize sound pollution to avoid harming marine mammals.

While transitioning to offshore wind and other forms of power is a critical step in the fight to end climate disruption we must also be responsible stewards of our oceans. Our offshore wind projects will be developed, constructed and operated in a way that avoids, minimizes, and mitigates impacts to environmental resources.

We will engage fully with Central and Local government authorities, coastal communities and environmental bodies during the process to ensure all of the relevant issues are identified, addressed and mitigated where needed.
