The newly installed DTBirdV8 and DTBatD3 have already been put to work at the Krammer Wind Park, in Zeeland, the Netherlands. Additional units will be installed during the wind farm construction until 2019. These are the first DTBird and DTBat units installed in concrete towers.
In late 2015, DTBirdV4 began operating in the Offshore Platform Fino 1, over 40km offshore in the North Sea, contracted by the Bundesamt für Seeschiffahrt und Hydrographie. This year the models DTBirdV4D8 and DTBirdV8 have been installed for the first time in onshore wind turbines in Lower Saxony and Bavaria.
The model DTBirdV4D8 has also been installed in the Terna Wind Farm, in Thrace, Greece under the LIFE project which aims to demonstrate the practical application of post-construction assessment and post-construction mitigation. DTBird was already participating in the LIFE project with the model DTBirdV4D4 which started operating at the Wind Farm and the Park of Energy Awareness of CRES at Keratea, Greece in 2016.
