At Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm, TRIG and other partners have undertaken voluntary studies to research the potential effects of offshore wind farms on predators (marine mammals and birds) and their prey (fish species). This study will cover both the operational and construction phases of the wind farm’s life and is led by Marine Scotland Science, along with other regulators. It is anticipated that the research will help further understanding of the cumulative environmental impacts, including potential benefits, of offshore wind farms on protected marine mammal and seabird population species. TRIG welcomes the opportunity to contribute and enhance the understanding of the interaction between offshore wind farms and marine wildlife. This increased understanding is beneficial to our current and future projects and the wider industry, providing greater marine environment monitoring and collaboration with regulatory and industry bodies.
