Offshore Redesign of Camera Housing

DTBird systems have been deployed successfully in an offshore environment since 2016, starting with the Offshore platform Fino1 (North Sea). Recently, a new and improved design for the cameras’ housing was developed. This housing gives greater protection against corrosion and humidity in a marine setting. For every wind farm, DTBird prepares a specific Engineering project to accommodate camera location, orientation and fixing to the wind turbine and/or transition piece, whether it’s a fixed or floating Wind Farm. New incoming Offshore projects will benefit it!

New Manufacturing Facilities and Company Areas

In recent months, DTBird strengthened and enlarged the organization and structure. Selection processes were opened, and the new employees were incorporated to develop the Human Resources, Legal, Research, Cybersecurity, Engineering and Manufacturing areas of DTBird&DTBat. Currently, there are more than 50 Technicians working behind the scenes.

The Manufacturing areas and offices have been expanded to accommodate more technicians, material stockage, tools and testing areas.

Cybersecurity Compliance

 

Since last year, the company began to implement an organizational cybersecurity policy, which ultimately improves the manufacturing of the DTBird & DTBat systems. The cybersecurity procedures include the fulfillment of IEC 62443, an international standard which applies to Wind Farms as these are considered large industrial communication networks and systems. Consequently, all the areas of the company were technically aligned, ranging from Human Resources (employee selection and cybersecurity awareness) to the hardening of the DTBird & DTBat systems (all hardware components included).

New DTBird Offshore Projects on the horizon!

As the Offshore wind market continues to grow across regions, so does the demand to install and operate DTBird & DTBat units. DTBird has unique features of bird monitoring, mortality mitigation, and even collision control that comply with the Environmental Authorizations. 

 DTBird Offshore units undergo a higher customization of equipment, cabling, fixing, communications and cybersecurity to fulfill the quality, durability and robustness needed for operation in marine weather conditions. 
 
DTBird is operating in the North Sea since 2016 and has been installed in 3 Offshore Projects and 5 Near-shore Projects. Lately, DTBird has completed 5 Engineering Design Projects, to be installed in new Wind Farms.
