In recent years, the construction of offshore wind farms in the German EEZ of the North and Baltic Seas has proven that noise mitigation systems are technologically mature and can be very effective. The threshold values set by the Federal Government's sound protection concept for the conservation of the marine environment can be complied with by applying various mitigation measures. The development was made possible by good cooperation between actors from nature conservation and environmental protection, science, politics and the offshore wind industry.

However, the technological development of wind turbines is progressing rapidly and it is evident that both the turbines and their foundations are becoming increasingly large. In order to investigate the question of what needs to be done to comply with the thresholds for pile driving noise in the future, the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation is organising a conference to which we would like to warmly invite you:

“Noise mitigation for the construction of increasingly large offshore wind turbines -
Technical options for complying with noise limits”

22nd and 23rd November 2018 (noon to noon)

Auditorium Friedrichstraße, 10117 Berlin

The conference will focus on the question which noise mitigation systems and concepts will be able to meet the environmental requirements in the future as wind turbines become larger and monopile diameters increase. We will also discuss the stage of development of various alternative foundation systems.
