Goldwind Australia has announced that it will be installing the iIdentiFlight aerial monitoring and detection technology system to mitigate Tasmanian Wedge-tailed Eagle impacts at Cattle Hill Wind Farm in the Central Highlands of Tasmania, Australia.
IdentiFlight’s tower-mounted optical units are designed to detect flying objects and then use algorithms to identify them as eagles within seconds. Sixteen IdentiFlight units are to be installed at the Cattle Hill Wind Farm. The location of the towers is designed so they will be able to detect eagles and shut down any of the 48 turbines as necessary.
