UK MCA launches wind farm trial

The UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has issued a Press Notice stating that it has begun a test to determine the possible effects of offshore wind farms on electronic navigation equipment, radios, and detection aids onboard vessels operating near the installations. These trials, which are being conducted off the north coast of Wales, will involve large merchant vessels, recreational vessels, and dedicated search-and-rescue units.
