Automatic Bird Monitoring & Protection
DTBird® is a self-working System for Bird Monitoring and/or Mortality Mitigation at On&Offshore Wind Turbines (WTG). The system automatically detects birds and can optionally take two independent actions to mitigate bird collision risk: the activation of warning sounds and/or the stoppage of the WTG.
 
About1
Detection/Collision Control Module
Daylight HD cameras survey 360º around the WTG. Optionally, at night 2-8 Thermal cameras survey the monitored areas around the WTG. Birds are detected in real-time while videos and data are stored. Installation design and operational settings are customized for any Target Species and WTG dimensions. Potential and accidental bird collisions can be recorded and checked in videos with sound through Online access.
 
 
Collision Avoidance Module
This module automatically emits warning sounds at birds flying in potential collision risk and discouraging sounds for birds flying in the high collision risk area. The type of sounds, emission levels, and installation and operational settings are adjusted to: target species, WTG dimensions and local sound regulations. No energy production loss and applicable to all bird species. Species-specific sounds can be applied.
Stop Control Module
Automatic WTG stop and restart according to real-time bird collision risk evaluation. Adjustable to target species/groups.
Data Analysis Platform
Online Data Analysis Platform provides transparent access to review bird flights including: videos with sound, environmental data and WTG operational parameters. Graphics and Automatic Service Reports for selected periods are also available. Includes two access right levels: Analyzer and Manager.

Scientific evaluation of the DTBat® system in wind turbines with high mortality of bats. Liquen (DTBird&DTBat) has a product, the DTBat®, with more than 40 systems installed in several countries since 2012. DTBat uses ultrasonic detectors with microphones installed in various positions, tower and/or nacelle according to the characteristics of the wind turbine and the bat species that use their environment. This makes it possible to detect the presence of bats in real time, and to trigger the wind turbine stop signal when detection thresholds are exceeded (e.g. more than 3 detections in 30 min). The stop signal is prolonged…

After closing up the Spanish Wind Energy event in Gran Canarias, Agustín Riopérez gave a brief presentation as a Speaker at the European Vulture Conference hosted by the Vulture Conservation Foundation. The Conference took place in Cáceres, Extremadura, and went from November 14th to November 17th in the San Francisco Cultural Centre. In the session, we shared how our system works, and showed examples of effective detections and WTG shutdowns with vultures being the main protagonists. Another takeaway point was the imminent growth in WTG rotor diameter seen across Onshore wind farms and how larger turbines would lead to longer…

DTBird’s CEO, Agustín Riopérez was invited as a Speaker and joined other four expert panelists to discuss the environmental value of Offshore Wind Farms, in the environmental session of the congress hosted by the Spanish Wind Energy Association (AEE in Spanish). It took place from November 6th till November 8th in Las Palmas, in Gran Canarias, and was carried out in the Auditorio Alfredo Kraus. In the session, we shared how our system works and the benefits of employing a camera-based detection system to monitor birds located near offshore wind farms. Since our systems record activity and also (potential) collisions, we provide…
