We have a concern regarding the transboundary impacts in chapter 12.8 on offshore ornithology. In the commentary column it is stated that at the time of writing no specific information was found in relation to turbine numbers and specifications or ornithology assessments. However, we recently upgraded the Ecology and Cumulation Framework. The original methodology is described (also in English) at this site: https://www.noordzeeloket.nl/en/functions-and-use/offshore-wind-energy/ecology/ In these calculations, scenario’s for size and number of turbines are used for the different plans up to 2030. We would appreciate if in the EIAinformation is used on planned turbine's in the Netherlands EEZ when assessing the accumulation of transboundary impacts.
