Vestas has announce that InteliLight, its Aircraft Detection Lighting System (ADLS), has demonstrated performance to FAA standards and is ready for use in the USA. The approval follows authority approval in Canada, Finland, Germany, Norway and Sweden.
Using radars with a minimum range of eight kilometers, InteliLight is an expanded product solution replacing Vestas’ Obstacle Collision Avoidance System (OCAS) that scans a wind park's surrounding areas. If an approaching airplane is detected, its distance, speed, and heading are tracked and aviation lights are activated only when needed. If activated, the lights are switched off once the aircraft has cleared the necessary designated space. Combining aircraft detection and aviation light control, the system provides end-to-end aviation safety for wind parks. Vestas InteliLight is integrated directly into the turbine equipment and designed specifically for wind project applications.
