IdentiFlight Technology to be Trialed to Protect Eagles at Goldwind Cattle Hill Wind Farm in Tasmania

October 31, 2018 – Goldwind Australia announced today that it will be installing the innovative IdentiFlight® aerial monitoring and detection technology system as one of the key initiatives to mitigate Tasmanian Wedge-tailed Eagle impacts at Cattle Hill Wind Farm in the Central Highlands of Tasmania.

IdentiFlight’s tower-mounted optical units are designed to detect flying objects and then use algorithms to identify them as eagles within seconds. If an eagle’s speed and flight path indicate a risk of collision with a wind turbine, an alert is generated to shut down the specific wind turbine.

Sixteen IdentiFlight units are to be installed at the Cattle Hill Wind Farm. The location of the towers is designed so they will be able to detect eagles and shut down any of the 48 turbines as necessary.
