“We are thrilled to unveil our V5 technology, representing a significant leap forward in species protection at wind farms,” said Carlos Jorquera, CEO and CTO of Boulder Imaging – the company responsible for developing IdentiFlight – remarked. “This milestone reflects our unwavering dedication to a sustainable future, where clean energy flourishes alongside thriving ecosystems.”

Key features of IdentiFlight V5 include:

  • Enhanced performance: V5 boasts improved detection accuracy and efficiency, ensuring swift and reliable identification and classification of bird species, particularly raptors such as eagles, hawks, and falcons, expanding detection to a 1.3 km range.
  • Ruggedised design: With ruggedised control cabinets capable of withstanding harsh environmental conditions, V5 is optimised for deployment in diverse landscapes, now including coastal areas.
  • Streamlined serviceability: The new design of V5 facilitates easier maintenance and serviceability, minimising downtime and optimising operational efficiency for wind farm operators.

The debut deployment of V5 will take place at the Musselroe wind farm in Tasmania, in collaboration with Woolnorth Renewables.

“The installation of IdentiFlight V5 at Musselroe underscores our dedication to protecting Tasmania's iconic wedge-tailed eagle and white-bellied sea eagle,” Jie Yao, Woolnorth Renewables General Manager, stated. “We recognise that cutting-edge solutions, such as IdentiFlight, are integral to mitigating potential risks of wind farms as we advance critical clean energy initiatives across Tasmania and Australia.”

Boulder Imaging President and COO, Don Mills, added: “Together with Woolnorth Renewables, we're proud to pioneer this next chapter in species protection. By deploying IdentiFlight's V5 technology at the Musselroe wind farm, we're not just innovating; we're setting new benchmarks for wildlife protection in wind farms. This partnership represents more than just a collaboration; it's a shared commitment to conservation and progress.”
