Caution! Bat Crossing
The goals of a wind power operator are to optimize switch-off times and increase yield. Where winged animals rule the skies, it has been necessary to reckon with costly downtimes – but Senvion is showing how to change that. With the help of WAGO, the wind turbine manufacturer offers operators the possibility of reacting even more flexibly to changes, for example: bat conservation.
Date information, wind speeds, temperatures: What functions as the basis for the weather forecast is really a kind of flight plan – for bats. “All this information is required in order to be able to make reliable statements about the activities of bats,” explains WAGO engineer Nino Flottmann. But for what purpose? The short answer: animal protection.
