Nightly Flashing of Windturbines - Compreshensive ADLS Roll-Out in NRW Begins

Walldorf, Germany - Together with the renewable energy associaition LEE NRW the Lathan Safe Sky GmbH has finalized a collaboration project to supply efficient transponder based ADLS systems for the North Rhine-Westphalia.

The federal state has over two thousand wind turbines all requiring the technology to be darkened at night when no air traffic is flying close-by. An optimal positioning of two hundred transponder receivers was necessary. The first fifty receivers have been ordered now bindingly by LEE and the project’s implementation phase has begun.

In recent months an optimal outfitting of the WTG occupied areas of North Rhine-Westphalia has been determined. As Lanthan points out, now the potential to implement an extremely cost effective ADLS systems is available to all operators. Lanthan Safe Sky will coordinate with these in order to determine the optimal connectivity to the ADLS signal. To this end hundreds of signal integration and transmission units will be employed.

Next to the numerous installations and almost complete coverage in Schleswig-Holstein, Lanthan Safe Sky has a project for complete coverage of Saarland with ADLS systems in the planning stages. “We see these large-scale cooperation projects as the best leverage in order to remain cost-effective in both hardware and implementation” said Steven Siemen, project implementation manager at Lanthan Safe Sky GmbH.
