Agreement on Compensation for Loss of Earnings from Fishing (Denmark)
DONG Energy has signed an agreement with the Danish Fishermen’s Association on compensation for loss of earnings from fishing in connection with the construction of Anholt Offshore Wind Farm.
The working area will be cordoned off for unauthorised persons during the construction, and there will be no fishing in the area.
On completion of the wind farm in 2013, net fishing will be resumed, whereas trawling will still be prohibited in the area. The agreement on compensation will be effective during the entire lifetime of the wind farm.
About Anholt Offshore Wind Farm
