Care was already taken during construction of the wind turbines to minimise environmental influences. For example, low-emission trucks were used and storage areas dismantled.
During operation, comprehensive environmental protection measures ensure that the impact on the local bat, wildcat and bird populations is kept as low as possible. Bat boxes have been installed and the breeding behaviour and migration of birds (especially cranes) is monitored and mapped.
