Site N-3.8

Site N-3.8 is located in the German EEZ of the North Sea in the western part of area N-3 defined in the FEP 2020. The data cable “TAT 14”, which is in operation, runs through the site. The pipeline “NorPipe” borders it to the northwest. Site N-3.8 is crossed by at least three decommissioned submarine cables.

The operating offshore wind farms “Gode Wind 01” and “Gode Wind 02” are adjacent to the east. The traffic separation area “German Bight Western Approach” runs adjacent to the north. The water depths are in a range between 29 to 33 m (Lowest Astronomical Tide).

The preliminary investigations on the marine environment implement the requirements of the standard “Investigation of the Impacts of Offshore Wind Turbines on the Marine Environment” (currently StUK4). According to Sec. 10 para. 1 no. 1 WindSeeG, investigations are carried out and documented which are required for an environmental impact study in the planning approval procedure according to Sec. 45 WindSeeG for the erection of offshore wind turbines on this site and which can be carried out independently of the later design of the project.

The preliminary investigations of the subsoil implement the requirements of the standard “Ground Investigations for Offshore Wind Energy”. According to Sec. 10 para. 1 no. 2 WindSeeG, a preliminary investigation of the subsoil is carried out as part of the preliminary investigation of sites. The investigations were carried out and documented in accordance with the standard “Ground Investigations for Offshore Wind Energy”. The preliminary geological investigation serves to describe the sedimentary/lithological conditions, the general bedding conditions and, if applicable, tectonic conditions in the area under investigation, as well as the general evaluation of the subsoil from a geological point of view.

The preliminary investigations of the wind and oceanographic conditions on site N-3.8 were carried out by the BSH according to the state of the art in science and technology. According to Sec. 10 para. 1 no. 3 WindSeeG, the BSH prepares reports on the wind and oceanographic conditions for the area to be pre-investigated as part of the preliminary investigation of sites.

Pursuant to Sec. 12 para. 3 sentence 2 WindSeeG, the BSH has furthermore determined the effects on shipping traffic as an additional subject of investigation on the basis of the results of the hearing. An expert opinion on the impact of the construction of offshore wind farms on the sites to be tendered on shipping is therefore part of the data package.

In accordance with Sec. 10 para. 2 of the WindSeeG, the BSH has examined the suitability of the site and, in accordance with Sec. 10 para. 3 WindSeeG, it has determined the capacity to be installed on the site. Pursuant to Sec. 12 para. 5 WindSeeG, it has determined the suitability in the form of the 1st Offshore Wind Energy Ordinance (1st WindSeeV). For the examination of suitability, pursuant to Sec. 35 para. 1 no. 1 of the Federal Environmental Impact Assessment Act (UVPG) in conjunction with no. 1.18 of Annex 5 to the UVPG, a strategic environmental assessment must be carried out. The environmental report prepared within the framework of the strategic environmental assessment, the suitability examination and a copy of the 1st WindSeeV are part of this data package.
