Results of the latest evaluation of DTBirdV4D4

In 2015 Ecocom, in collaboration Vindform, initiated a pilot project to install and showcase the DTBird system, and to evaluate how the DTBird system performs under Swedish conditions. The report (in Swedish) can be found in the following link: Pilotinstallation av DTBird-systemet i Sverige Möjligheter med skyddssystem för fågelfaunan vid vindkraftanläggningar – erfarenheter från Sveriges första installation av DTBird. Ecocom AB. Amongst others it includes the following results:

The system is viable for bird detection and enables species' identification of large and medium-sized birds.
The system offers effective protection above all for large birds by reducing their dwell time in the risk area between 61-87%.
The system triggers avoidance behaviour in 88% of cases where the bird is on a collision course with the wind turbine. An individual observation was performed for the White-Tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) where the avoidance behaviour was noted as well.
The reports' sumary was translated to English by DTBird in the link: Experiences from Sweden's first DTBird instalation. Ecocom AB.

The video of the White-Tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) collision avoidance is available in DTBirdteam Youtube channel: DTBird Collision Avoidance: White-tailed Eagle.

8th Anniversary since first DTBird installation at a Wind Turbine

Although DTBird research program started in 2005, in Mach 2009 the first DTBird unit was installed at a wind turbine of Sammca Group, in Spain. Currently over 90 DTBird&DTBat units are distributed in 11 countries.
Ever since, DTBird has been under continuous evaluation, research and improvement process with incomes from scientists, computer engineers, ornithologists and veterinarians from many countries. Current DTBird specifications can be found in the link: DTBird System Specifications for Wind Turbines. February 2017.
