Based on input from a range of experts, the company has developed seven tangible measures. For example, ledges attached to the outer storm walls will provide somewhere for the black-legged kittiwake, a vulnerable bird species, to rest and breed. Below the waterline, several measures will be combined to create a diverse and rich artificial reef. The measures were selected based on their technical feasibility and expected positive impact. Through this initiative, Elia is striving to become a pioneer in the sustainable construction and operation of offshore infrastructure. A scientific monitoring programme will be rolled out to follow up on the results of this unique project and make adjustments if necessary.
