The Brigg Vind companies have extensive practical experience with sustainability from decades of building renewables energy projects in Norway, as well as international offshore wind experience on how to deliver on environmental sustainability and co-existence with other users of the sea. Our strong local anchoring means we also understand the unique challenges, and appropriate solutions, applicable in Norway.
We engage in research programmes to gain knowledge about the impacts of offshore wind on both the environment and society. We are currently funding and taking actively part in the following research programmes that all aim to gain more knowledge about offshore wind’s interactions with nature, in particular birds:·
· Impact Wind aims to enable quicker development of sustainable offshore wind on the Norwegian continental shelf through the strengthening of a common knowledge base and regional research and education relevant for ongoing and coming licensing processes.
· SeaTrack aims to map the non-breeding distribution of seabirds breeding in colonies in the North Atlantic
· VisAviS focuses on visualising avian migration across Norway, supporting sustainable coastal and offshore wind energy development.
We optimise our projects to minimise greenhouse gas emissions throughout the lifecycle of the project, including through the supply chain.
We work towards nature inclusive design and nature-positive outcomes in our projects.
We have collaborated closely with other users of the sea since the inception of our project and will continue to do so throughout the project’s development, operations and decommissioning.
We optimise circularity and work closely with our suppliers to design for reuse and recycling.
We advocate for effective use of the Sørlige Nordsjø II area, estimating that the area can fit up to 6 GW of offshore wind capacity.
