An array of bladeless wind turbines

Are Bladeless Wind Turbines the Future of Wind Farms?

Wind farms are a key source of sustainable energy and a vital weapon in the fight against climate change. But while they help to reduce humanity's carbon footprint, conventional turbine designs can have a significant impact on bird populations. According to estimates, standard two and three-blade turbines cause anywhere between 140,000-500,000 bird deaths every year in the US alone. Operators use technology to mitigate that risk – from cameras and acoustic deterrents to bird detection radar. And now, with the invention of bladeless wind turbines, they have another tool at their disposal. But just how practical and scalable is this new technology? In this article, we take a closer look at one of the leading manufacturers: Vortex Bladeless.

5 Reasons Why Every Offshore Wind Farm Needs a Radar Micro Shelter

The harsh, offshore environment presents new and unique challenges to radar maintenance, upkeep, and performance. Radars are used at offshore wind farms to monitor and assess the farm’s environmental impact, particularly on birds and their habitats, accurately and safely. Their ability to be present and running on-site 24/7 makes them critically important to remotely controlling the turbines and reducing bird mortality.
