PROBLEM:
Obstruction lights, required on wind turbines for aviation safety, disturb nearby residents.

SOLUTION:
Use sensing technology to dim these lights when they are not needed.


Many countries allow wind turbine operators to dim their obstruction lights when not needed for safety. Join Vaisala's Michael Kalkum to learn how you can do this with sensor technology.

The webinar will answer the following questions:

  • What countries have regulations allowing the dimming of obstruction control lights?
  • What solutions does Vaisala offer?
  • What should you keep in mind when installing and maintaining visibility sensors on turbines?
