Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO014: Birds Anti-collision solution based on an unique combination of 3D Radar technology and AI to mitigate wind farms impacts on birdlife while optimizing plants operations

Carlos Vivas Teno, Director of Asset Management, MInsait


Minsait aims to focus on one of the current issues that concerns both the public opinion, administrations, and, of course, power generating companies: how to make wind power generation compatible with bird protection, especially for certain endangered species or those under special protection. This growing concern, as new wind projects are developed and implemented, affects not only the commercial operation phase of the parks but can also be crucial in obtaining environmental authorization during the project's processing. Additionally, when it comes to park operation, bird protection can significantly impact operating hours and the number of starts and stops in wind turbines. Minsait is developing, testing, and already deploying in the market technologies and methodologies based on radar and artificial vision that allow for the complete airspace control of the wind park, with the main goal of minimizing downtime in wind park operations, while ensuring regulatory compliance related to the preservation of protected birds. The solution and methodology could also be used to monitor compliance with protocols or regulations set by the administration (such as the protocol for dealing with problematic wind turbines), to establish behavioral patterns for each bird species (migration routes), and even in pre-commercial park operation phases, it could be a valuable tool to determine the type of bird species in a specific location.
