MUSE: Monitor bird movements in offshore wind farms 24/7 to ensure compliance

As wind farm developers and operators, you face a growing demand to monitor bird behaviour like never before. The importance of this task cannot be understated, especially considering that regulations in many countries now require shutdowns when rare species or large flocks of birds approach.

 

How we can help

With MUSE, our multi-sensor bird detection application, you can easily obtain clear documentation of bird behaviour around wind farms, both before and after construction. Based on an integrated setup of radars and cameras, real-time bird behaviour is automatically recorded and displayed online. MUSE offers frequent, high-quality observations without the logistical constraints and risks associated with human access to offshore turbines and substations.
