RES sells bird detector stake
IdentiFlight system aims to reduce wildlife impacts of wind farms
RES has sold exclusive marketing rights along with the intellectual property related to the IdentiFlight bird detection system to a Colorado affiliate.
IdentiFlight International, which is jointly owned by Boulder Imaging and private investors, has acquired the system.
The avian detection system is fully automated and was developed in collaboration with Boulder Imaging, RES said.
It aims to reduce the wildlife impacts of wind energy with particular emphasis on the protection of in-flight species, such as bald and golden eagles.
Boulder Imaging chief executive and chief technology officer Carlos Jorquera said: “Boulder Imaging shares RES’ passion to protect wildlife and ensure nature and wind energy can coexist.
“With third party testing and validation now complete, we are thrilled to assume the leadership and ownership of this product at such a critical stage.”
