Equinor Joins Offshore Wind, Fisheries Partnership


In an increased effort to promote the coexistence and collaboration between offshore wind development and the U.S. fishing industry, the Responsible Offshore Development Alliance (RODA) has announced Equinor Wind US as a new member of the alliance’s joint industry task force.

The purpose of the task force is to develop recommendations for maximizing the compatibility of offshore wind development with the established fishing industry in the region, says RODA.

In particular, the task force will focus on improving communications regarding operational and design elements of offshore wind energy development projects and commercial fishing practices.

The partnership was launched earlier this year alongside Ørsted U.S. Offshore Wind. RODA was announced in mid-2018.

RODA invites any interested wind energy developers, commercial fishermen or fishing industry businesses to join the effort.
