KAVARNA WIND FARM
The wind farm Kavarna, located along the coast of the Black Sea, has particular good wind conditions, but it also happens to be in the path of a main migration route for migrating birds.
Valentin Yanchelov, Head of Environmental Affairs at EVN, described what he found important in the radar:
"The system can track the trajectory of birds. And it also provides wind information, which is very important in estimating the flight trajectory of the birds. The radar is able to track single birds as well as flocks, and can group birds by size. There are several classes of birds and the risks for each class are different. For large soaring birds, the risk of collison is significantly higher than for the smaller, more agile birds."
And the reason EVN chose Robin Radar Systems, according to EVN Project Developer, David Kadarabek?
"It's a perfect match for the site and for our project in Kavarna. Due to the possibilities, not only to be the vendor of the radar itself, but also giving us the chance for cooperation and optimisation of the radar system to the specifics of this site."
