Deutsche Windtechnik Starts ADLS Installations after Passing Type Approval Test

Bremen, Germany - Deutsche Windtechnik has successfully passed the type approval test for its aircraft detection light system (ADLS) for wind turbines. This means that the transponder-based ADLS system of Deutsche Windtechnik is ready for market launch, the company announced.

Deutsche Windtechnik is now offering the ADLS retrofitting of wind turbines of all leading turbine technologies. Operators with a mix of manufacturers can also benefit.

Early certification as a good starting position

With the early certification, Deutsche Windtechnik claims to have "an excellent starting position" to enable operators to retrofit with ADLS in a timely and flexible manner. ""Our ADLS was developed to fulfil the requirements of the AVV as well as to ensure eligibility for the EEG remuneration. We guarantee this, for example, through extensive logging of all ADLS operating states," says Jasper Salzwedel, Senior Sales Manager at Deutsche Windtechnik.

ADLS system cross-technology

With the certification, the ADLS system of Deutsche Windtechnik can be installed across technologies as planned. According to Deutsche Windtechnik, this means that operators of mixed wind farm portfolios of different turbine manufacturers can use a single ADLS system.
