Project: Wind Turbine Bird Strike Avoidance System

Acronym WITURBISA (Reference Number: 12759)
Duration 01/01/2020 - 03/01/2023
Project Topic WITURBISA’s consortium aims to develop and deliver a cost-effective sensor system for automatic bird detection and species recognition in wind farms (WFs). The WITURBISA system will through integration with the WFs’ Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems perform automatic sensor-assisted shutdown of wind turbines based on the prediction of harmful interactions with endangered birdlife, representing an enabler for wind energy in locations where birdlife is an obstacle.
