“None of the screened areas are not recommended in the report for the establishment of offshore wind turbines due to unsuitable seabed, adverse environmental conditions or coincidence with human interests,” the agency said.
“However, it is recommended that in sub-areas of Bornholm and Kriegers Flak, a more detailed analysis of the sensitivity of selected bird species in relation to their impact in the production of offshore wind, should be carried out."

The Modular Offshore Grid (MOG), is Belgium company Elia's first power hub in the North Sea. The switching platform is 40 km off the coast. By the end of 2020, it will combine electricity generated by four offshore wind farms (Rentel, Seastar, Mermaid and Northwester 2) for onward transmission to the mainland. This is more efficient than transmitting the power via individual cables and improves security of supply.
