Funding of DEPONS

Recognising that improved knowledge on the impacts of piling noise will be critical to be able to expand offshore wind power in balance with a long-term viable North Sea harbour porpoise population, a group of six offshore wind developers led by Vattenfall joined forces to initiate and fund the research program DEPONS.
