Pilot Overview

The Anholt offshore wind farm, operated by Ørsted Wind Power, is one of the largest offshore wind areas in the Baltic basin. It has been identified as a potentially suitable site for the integration of aquaculture activities in Danish offshore wind farms. The pilot aims to investigate the production potential of commercially viable LTA species in the Baltic Sea basin and develop adaptations of existing and emergent technologies to endure offshore conditions. The pilot also focuses on monitoring systems, biodiversity effects, and the development of innovative LTA cultivation techniques.

PILOT'S CHALLENGES

– The main challenge is overcoming the barriers posed by high energy systems at Anholt, where the evaluation of different cultivation technologies will be critical in determining the economic and physical viability of aquaculture activities.
