Merchant Navy captain raises concerns over wind farm plans

A former Merchant Navy Captain has warned of potential disruptions to ferry and freight routes, if plans for a wind farm off the coast of Ramsey go ahead.

Yesterday, Dong Energy signed a lease agreement with the Government to survey the area, as they look to bring in as many as a hundred turbines.

Mezeron and Stena vessels would both have to alter their services if the current blueprints were put in place – as the wind farm would obstruct the routes.

Captain Stuart McKenzie – who provides AIS data for Vesseltracker – doesn’t believe the issue will put a stop to the project.
