For bats

Not only about the effectiveness of existing measures, but also about bats' behaviour and migration routes. As such, we want to prioritise gaining as much knowledge as possible about this species to better understand how we should approach bats and their habitat at sea.

What we do know about bats is that, like birds, the most important negative effect is the risk of (fatal) collisions with the blades of the wind turbines. We also think that some bat species might be affected by construction lights.

As such, the innovations in our approach for bats focus on limiting the risk of collisions and light pollution as much as possible.
