Detect and reduce the risk of collision of flying fauna on wind turbines
Biodiv-Wind SAS, winner of the French Tech 2019 Label Pass, is among the leaders on the market of technological solutions for wildlife detection contributing to the reduction of industrial impacts.
Created in 2014 in Béziers (Hérault), Biodiv-Wind SAS has equipped nearly 172 wind turbines in France, Germany, Finland, Austria and Iceland and has 30 employees including several experienced naturalists and IT specialists.
Its know-how and innovations R&D in optical detection systems are recognized in France and internationally. Today, its main market is the management of onshore and offshore wind farms birds and bats collison risks.
In response, Biodiv-Wind SAS has developed the system. is an innovative real-time automated detection system for flying fauna that relies on a unique video processing software capable of detecting and tracking moving targets even when moving through rotating wind turbine blades.
Offshore : Birds
Secured and accessibled data
High quality components
How it works
These elements are connected to a computer unit, installed inside the mast of the wind turbine, which analyzes in real time and continuously the received video streams in order to detect any intrusions. In line with the detection parameters, which can be scaled according to the installation site requirements, engages automatically scaring and/or regulation actions. These actions are automatically stopped as soon as the birds/bats are off the risk zone.
