Abstract

The aim of this part of the Monitoring and Evaluation Program NSW (MEP-NSW), i.e. “acoustic measurements”, is to measure and analyze underwater sound emissions from the construction of the OWEZ wind farm and to investigate the effects to marine animals (in particular fish, harbour porpoises and seals) from other relevant studies. The Off-Shore Wind farm Egmond aan Zee (OWEZ) was built in the Dutch coastal zone 8 - 18 km off the coast from Egmond aan Zee. It consists of an arrangement of 36 wind turbines with a total capacity of 108 MW.
