In a groundbreaking collaboration, offshore wind farm maker Ørsted and marine engineer Red7Marine have introduced a pioneering solution to protect endangered birds while generating clean electricity. Three nearshore artificial nesting structures have been installed along the East Coast of England, providing a safe haven for vulnerable species like Kittiwakes.
These innovative nests mimic the birds’ natural habitats and will be closely monitored by a dedicated tech team. Not only does this initiative help conserve wildlife, but it also bolsters Ørsted’s Hornsea 3 project, aiming to power 3 million UK homes with renewable energy. This remarkable technology is a beacon of hope for a greener, sustainable future.
