Germans commission environmental studies in Baltic Sea

Offshore Ostsee Wind of Börgerend, Germany, has commissioned the research vessel Oceania for an initial two month period to carry out "environmental compatibility" studies at the Baltic Sea site of its proposed offshore wind station. The studies will take about two years. In the first two months the ship's crew will research bird and fish life, the sea bed, marine currents and water quality at the Kriegers Flak site, 35 kilometres north of the island of Rügen. Offshore Ostsee Wind hopes to start construction of up to 70 turbines with rated capacities of 3.5-5 MW in 2004. Financing for the EUR 260 million project is being arranged by WPD of Bremen.
