Ørsted trials turning offshore wind turbine foundations into safe havens for corals

Ørsted, the world’s most sustainable energy company, is planning a world-first attempt to support coral reefs by growing corals on offshore wind turbine foundations. Together with Taiwanese partners, the company will test the concept in the tropical waters of Taiwan this summer. The aims are to determine whether corals can be successfully grown on offshore wind turbine foundations and to evaluate the potential positive biodiversity impact of scaling up the initiative.

According to the UN Environment Programme, coral reefs provide habitat for an... ... More: Official Press Release Ørsted
