Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


As a result of the large number of license applications regarding the development and operation of offshore wind parks (OWPs) that have been made since 2005 to the competent authority RWS – a department of the Dutch Ministry of Transport and Water works, a need has arisen to have insight in the cumulative (additive) effects of OWPs on the North Sea. The cumulative effects in CUMULEO are determined based on four different themes: - birds, - marine mammals and fish, - benthic fauna and - landscape and perception. For each theme a calculation rule is defines, based on a number of assumptions. Next a scenario is followed to calculate the cumulative effects for each theme. In the overview below all considered use functions are listed, also the basic method used to determine the effects in CUMULEO is indicated.
