Monitoring bird activity in onshore and offshore wind farms for developers and operators.
The current bird monitoring solutions offer count on observers in the field or complex hardware. Tightening regulations are pressuring operators and developers to spend EUR 18 000 per turbine per year for bird monitoring. Robust bird monitoring data eases environmental compliance and licensing for wind developers. This can reduce delays, increase wind industry build out, and avoid 100mT of CO2 emissions by 2026.
Spoor is using computer vision and AI to develop a software to monitor bird activity in onshore and offshore wind farms for developers and operators, using off-the-shelf cameras. The system will be capable of near real-time classification of bird species and collision-risk estimations. By bringing the complexity out of the hardware setup and into the software, we ease data gathering, operationalizing data and compliance to optimize wind farm production capacity.
Our unique combination of product and service design, business development, environmental sustainability, previous founder, software and AI development experience makes us the perfect fit for this challenge. The problem space also aligns deeply with our values, which is to help create a future we believe in.
