OTB Bremerhaven stopped by the court

OTB Bremerhaven stopped by the court

In two summary proceedings, the court imposed an immediate stop to all work on the €180M offshore wind farm support project, following an action by environmental group BUND.

 

The court found that OTB’s "public interest" case was not sufficiently proven by the project’s backers and, therefore, interference with the natural estate was not justified.

 

It is not clear at this juncture whether the state of Bremen will appeal to a higher court, or seek a compromise with BUND on the basis of a revision of the plan. The state’s governing political party (SPD) in Bremerhaven said it will continue to work on the project, "possibly with variations."

 

BUND spokesman Martin Rohde said: “We will wait for the court’s written verdict and discuss the matter in respective committees, but our original positions are far apart.”

 

Jörg Scholz of the Bremen ministry for shipping and ports, said: "We have to reconsider the entire project and we are prepared to try to find a suitable solution for all sides."
