Quality, Information security & Environmental Policy

Our goals

How it works

Bird Protect™ is a bird detection and deterrence system that is designed to protect birds from colliding with wind turbines. The system uses high definition cameras that are installed at a height of around 10 meters above the ground, which scan the sky around the wind farm to detect birds. The images captured by the cameras are processed using machine learning algorithms that are trained to distinguish between birds and other moving objects, such as planes, blades, and clouds. Every WTG is equipped with 4 special stainless steel (316) boxes, which are all mounted on the tower with high quality neodymium magnets with santoprene coating. Each box is equipped with eight-megapixel super starlight cameras. When a bird is detected, the system monitors its course to determine whether it poses a threat to the wind turbine. If the bird enters the deterrence zone, which is a predefined area around the turbine where birds are at risk of colliding with the blades, the system emits a sound to make the bird change its course. This sound is designed to be unpleasant to birds and to encourage them to fly away from the danger area. If the bird continues to fly towards the wind turbine despite the sound, the system will shut down the turbine until the bird leaves the danger area. This is done to prevent the bird from colliding with the blades, which can be fatal for the bird and can also cause damage to the turbine. Once the bird has left the danger area, the turbine can be restarted, and the system resumes its monitoring. Overall, Bird Protect is an innovative solution that uses advanced technology to protect birds from the potential dangers of wind turbines. By detecting and deterring birds from entering the danger zone, the system helps to minimize the risk of collisions, which can be harmful to both birds and wind turbines.
