Preparations to install the ADLS have already begun, but the actual installation of the system is scheduled to take place during the summer months when there is less wind and will be combined with routine maintenance deployments. The breeding seasons of some sea birds will also be factored in. Jens Landwehr, Managing Director of Deutsche Windtechnik's offshore unit, said: "We are very pleased that our ADLS can now also demonstrate its flexible application options in the offshore area. As always, it is important to not only develop a good technical concept but also to take basic conditions such as environmental requirements into consideration, and to keep the logistical effort low and the availability high." According to the German Federal Network Agency, the wind turbines at all offshore wind farms must be fitted with ADLS by the end of 2023.
Deutsche Windtechnik will equip the Butendiek offshore wind farm with its ADLS in 2023.
