Abstract

Denmark has designated the area of the Kriegers Flak to install an offshore wind farm of 600 MW, which is planned to be fully operational in 2022. This chapter investigates the combination of wind turbines and offshore aquaculture. The fish farming is planned as two separate facilities located between the two groups of turbines and each fish farm section will consist of 12-14 round cages with a diameter of 45 m and a feeding barge delivering feed by means of compressed air through tubes to each cage. Although the Social Cost Benefit Analysis of the multi-use platform scenario was not completed due to lack of information, the scenario is expected to be sustainable considering the current policy and institutional framework, as well as the environmental and socio-economic effects.
