ADLS Deutsche Windtechnik passes type approval test – installations can begin 

Deutsche Windtechnik has successfully passed the type approval test for its aircraft detection light system (ADLS) for wind turbines. This means Deutsche Windtechnik's transponder-based ADLS system is ready for market launch and is now available for ADLS retrofitting on wind turbines of all leading system technologies. 

This early certification puts Deutsche Windtechnik in an excellent position to enable operators to retrofit with ADLS in a timely and flexible manner. "Our ADLS was developed to fulfil the requirements of the AVV as well as to ensure eligibility for the EEG remuneration. We guarantee this, for example, through extensive logging of all ADLS operating states. After the ADLS is installed, we continue to provide support for the system with our experienced technicians," said Jasper Salzwedel, Senior Sales Manager at Deutsche Windtechnik. The certification means that Deutsche Windtechnik's ADLS can be installed on turbines from different manufacturers as planned. "Our ADLS is also the right choice for operators with mixed portfolios: Only one ADLS needs to be installed, even if the wind farm comprises different types of turbines," Jasper Salzwedel said.

Matthias Brandt, Director at Deutsche Windtechnik, added: "Karl Keusgen, who was in charge of developing the ADLS at Deutsche Windtechnik, and his team have done the operator market a great service. Their tireless efforts have ensured an increase in the number of available alternatives. As a result, we have a more flexible, customizable solution that can be implemented more quickly.”
