On Friday, 29 September 2023, the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) will welcome a delegation from the Energy Transition Forum of the Republic of Korea to Hamburg. The representatives from science and the environment will exchange views with BSH experts on the planning and implementation of offshore wind energy. One thematic focus will be the consideration of environmental concerns.
“With the major task of using offshore wind energy for reasons of climate protection, international exchange is gaining in importance,” says the BSH’s Head of Department “Management of the Sea”, Dr. Nico Nolte.
The Korean delegation wants to get to know the BSH and learn more about how Germany’s central maritime authority plans offshore wind energy. The BSH’s task is to take into account the many different interests in the use of the sea and to ensure that the seas are protected. In particular, the BSH ensures the synchronous development of offshore wind energy and the necessary grid connection with the site development plan. Conversely, the BSH experts are very interested in the South Korean perspective and the plans there for the development of offshore wind energy. Options for further technical exchanges were also discussed.
