OCAS Receives New Customer Order in Central Europe
The customer is based in Central Europe, and the OCAS delivery will be done in conjunction with a repowering project, where older turbines are replaced with taller and more efficient turbines, producing more energy. A world leading turbine manufacturer will deliver the turbines.
OCAS (Obstacle Collision Avoidance System) is an innovative radar-based solution that eliminates light pollution and reduces the visual impact of wind farms on its neighbors and immediate environment. Using 3D radar technology, OCAS keeps the required flashing obstacle warning lights of the wind turbines turned off unless an aircraft is on a dangerous path towards the park. Wind developers benefit from using OCAS by decreasing the visual impact of the wind farm, easier acceptance by local communities, shorter permitting time, and increased energy production by allowing for taller turbines.
CEO Shahzad Abid of OCAS AS stated “During the last months we have seen increasing interest for our solution in several European countries, and we are particularly pleased to win this deal, since it shows that OCAS can also be an important part of wind farm repowering projects”.
“The OCAS solution will delight the local communities around the wind farm as it clearly reduces the visual impact of the wind farm”, added Abid.
OCAS has to date supplied radar systems to customers in Norway, Sweden, USA and Canada.
