Safety of wind power

SafeWind project’s objective was to find cross-border, common approaches for minimising wind farms’ negative environmental impact in the future. In the background of the project was the need to establish new international transport corridors, and wind-power generation for them, at remote and hard-to-reach territories along the Northern Sea Route. The project worked in close cooperation with Kolarctic CBC project Northern Axis – Barents Link.
