    Ensuring Romanian wind farm poses no threat to bird habitats 

    A 2019 International Energy Agency report offers a glimpse into a future dominated by clean energy. It suggests that erecting wind turbines on the world’s best offshore sites could provide more than enough clean energy to meet global electricity demand. The report is especially pertinent during a time of unprecedented climate change. Throughout its history, RSK has been a great believer in and an advocate for renewable energy, particularly wind farms. To this end, we have worked with Electrawinds, a Belgian renewable energy company, to realise its renewable energy projects in Europe and South Africa.

    Electrawinds proposed the development of a wind farm in Galați county, eastern Romania, that would be split into three sites and include 41 3-MW turbines. Owing to our solid work in renewable energy projects, the company commissioned us to review and provide expert opinion regarding the environmental impact assessments that had been prepared locally for the three wind farms, which would be developed and managed as a single facility.

    RSK was also responsible for managing the additional bird and bat surveys to provide a baseline census of their populations in the proposed project area and, where possible, a quantitative assessment of each species. The extensive bird surveys, which considered spring and autumn migration patterns, and breeding sites, concluded that the wind farm sites were not in sensitive areas. The main and secondary migration routes were far enough away that the new development would not affect them.

    Our specialists in the region reviewed the environmental impact assessments to ensure compliance with the financial institutions’ performance requirements. We also provided a supplementary environmental impact assessment report and project management for the site development.

    In 2013, Electrawinds again sought our expert opinion on a wind farm project. We were tasked with advising on the status of the project to ensure strengthening of the environmental dossier for financing the project. We completed the project on time and to Electrawinds’ great satisfaction.
