Selected compensating measures

For the erection and operation of wind energy turbines Sabowind puts a lot of energy in finding and planning appropriate compensating measures, while we try to compensate impairments directly at the location together with the local communities. The final agreement of the compensating measures is done by the nature conservation authority. From unsealing areas and plantations up to near-natural waters all measures are possible, which enhance the landscape and provide an ecological surplus for animals and nature.

demolition of sheds and orchard plantation

unsealing of area makes new plantings possible

To compensate impairments of nature and landscape due to the construction of two wind turbines at wind farm Artern-Kachstedt, old sheds have been dismantled and an orchard meadow was planted on 7.300 m2 at Seega (Kyffhäuserland district).

By unsealing the area, important soil and water functions have been restored, hence the ground can take up precipitation water. Now the cultivation of the area is possible because once again the plants are able to take up essential minerals from soil water. The measure was completed by creating an orchard meadow with regional fruit varieties and extensive management, which provides habitat for a species-rich fauna (e.g. bees, bats and birds).

The area will be mowed during the first five years. Afterwards mowing will be replaced by pasturing.
