Goldwind Australia has announced the installation of the IdentiFlight technology is complete and the technology is ready for the learning period 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. If an eagle’s speed and flight path indicate a risk of collision with a wind turbine, a signal is sent to shut down the specific wind turbine. Sixteen IdentiFlight towers and the IdentiFlight base station have been installed at the project site. Once the wind farm is operational, the location of the IdentiFlight towers will allow them to shut down any of the forty-eight Goldwind turbines as necessary.
