Abstract

The Dutch government has granted ‘Noordzeewind’ (Nuon Renewable Energy Projects and Shell Wind Energy) the possibility to build a wind farm consisting of 36 wind turbines off the coast of the Netherlands, near Egmond. This project serves to evaluate the economical, technical, ecological and social effects of offshore wind farms in general. To gather the knowledge which will result from this project, a Monitoring and Evaluation Program (MEP) has been developed. Bureau Waardenburg and Alterra in cooperation have been commissioned by RIKZ to execute the base line study of effects on flight paths, flight altitudes and flux of migratory and non-migratory birds.
