An association of fishery organizations and companies is once again trying to stop Norwegian Statoil's 800 MW offshore wind project off US state of New York with a new lawsuit, reports North American Wind Power Tuesday.
The lawsuit not only impacts Statoil but also the US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). The group of plaintiffs, led by Fisheries Survival Fund (FSF), claims that ahead of the lease awarding, the BOEM neglected to evaluate the consequences of a large offshore wind farm for the area's fishery.
