EDPR installs metal containers in a farm near to the Rabosera wind farm (Aragón, Spain)

EDPR installs metal containers in a farm near to the Rabosera wind farm (Aragón, Spain)

Year after year EDPR continues to show its commitment with continuous improvement in environmental performance.

In 2014 and in collaboration with Grupo Jorge, a company from the pork meat sector with a farm located near the area of the Rabosera wind farm (Aragón, Spain), metal containers were installed to replace the old plastic containers that had been traditionally used.

The goal of this measure is preventing the “pull effect” that the presence of animal remains generated in the pork farm could generate for species such as vultures.

The installation of metal containers that are inaccessible to scavenger birds prevents them from approaching and attempting to feed in the vicinity of the wind farm, as such birds are attracted by the remains that are generated by the farm; therefore this initiative reduces the risks that derive from the presence of the installation.
