OCAS Inc. and RES Americas have announced a regional partnership, which allows RES to market, distribute and install the OCAS Wind Turbine Collision Avoidance System in North America. The regional exclusivity covers the states of Oregon and Washington and the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
The OCAS solution keeps wind farm strobe lights off at all times unless an aircraft is detected heading toward the wind turbines. The OCAS warning system is mounted on the turbine tower to detect approaching aircraft and activates the turbine strobe lights for a primary visual warning as required by the Federal Aviation Administration and Transport Canada.
