Wave Energy in the North Sea


Biodiversity

The anchor of the Slow Mill is a concrete block with a diameter of ca. 10 m. on which lots of sea life can grow. The food chain starts with hard soil as that's needed for small organisms to develop. Ever since the obliteration of the hard soil by ffishing away most of the oyster banks, flora and fauna in the North Sea got decimated. At this moment the ca. 3000 ship wrecks start the basic food chain but each wind park that gets protected by a Slow Mill park would add about 15-20 ha hard soil to make flora and fauna in the North Sea florish and prosper again.
