Galloper is a 353MW extension of Greater Gabbard wind farm off the coast of Suffolk. Its Operations & Maintenance (O&M) Facility at Harwich International Port opened in early 2020 to deliver 24/7 management of the offshore wind farm. RWE Renewables, Galloper’s operator and co-owner, is required to undertake two years of bird displacement and disturbance monitoring of the O&M Facility, as a requirement of its marine licence.
 
ABPmer has been appointed by Galloper Wind Farm Limited (GWFL) to oversee and report the findings of the bird surveys. A two-year bird survey programme consisting of 80 separate surveys will be undertaken. From this ABPmer will prepare and submit monthly and annual reports to the MMO on behalf of RWE Renewables. The programme will provide evidence of what change, if any, occurs in bird populations due to the O&M facility operating. The monitoring and reporting programme began in late 2020 and is due to complete in June 2022.
