Baseline Survey of Birds and Bats, Environmental Impact Assessment and Nature Impact Assessment for Wind Farm Fužine

Project name: Baseline Survey of Birds and Bats, Environmental Impact Assessment and Nature Impact Assessment for Wind Farm Fužine

Client: Prodomo Ltd.
Period: 09/2010 – 08/2013
Location: Croatia


The project WF Fužine involved two wind turbines to be put into operation in two phases at locations: Phase I – Zvirjak area total strength of 36 MW and Phase II – Kobiljak area total strength of 20 MW.

Preliminary activities for the project of Windfarm Fužine included: 1. Brief description of the process for Environmental Impact Assessment for Wind Power Plant projects in Croatia; 2. List of the technical documentation required for EIA; 3. Pre-assessment report starting from the constraints so far envisaged and pointed out in the technical documentation for the PEO; 4. 12 months monitoring and reporting (interim and final report) of birds and bats.

The project included Environmental and Nature Impact Assessments (EIA and NIA), including Main Assessment, as well as bat and bird fauna field research, on the location of planned construction of wind farm.

Activities included gathering of information on species composition, bird/bat activity, potential nesting sites, analysis of habitat types of the wider area, analysis of habitat types of the wider area, foraging areas and migration routes, habitat use, terrain morphology, spatial characteristics and other collected data. Assessment of likely (significant) impacts was conducted, and protection measures and monitoring program were proposed.
