OCAS and RES Americas Announce Partnership


    



    
</pre>
<p><span class="xn-location">VIENNA</span>, Va., <span class="xn-chron">Aug. 24</span> /CNW/ -- OCAS, Inc. and RES Americas announced today a regional exclusive partnership which allows RES to market, distribute, and install the OCAS Wind Turbine Collision Avoidance System in <span class="xn-location">North America</span>. The regional exclusivity covers the northwest states of Oregon and Washington, and the Canadian provinces of Ontario and <span class="xn-location">Quebec</span>.</p>
<p/>
<p>The OCAS solution keeps wind farm strobe lights off at all times unless an aircraft is detected on an unsafe heading toward the wind turbines. The patented 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 FAA and Transport <span class="xn-location">Canada</span>. If the aircraft does not take measures to avoid the turbines, a secondary audio warning is delivered to the pilot's radio. By keeping the system off until an aircraft is detected, OCAS leaves skies free from light pollution, decreasing public annoyance, lowering the visual impact of the wind project while increasing safety for the aviation community. The OCAS solution is the first and only Aircraft Detection System (ADS) or Audio Visual Warning System (AVWS) approved and tested by Transport <span class="xn-location">Canada</span> and the Federal Aviation Administration for use in <span class="xn-location">Canada</span> and the <span class="xn-location">United States</span>.</p>
<p/>
<p>"I am extremely excited to team up with an industry leader like RES to help launch OCAS technology into the North American wind market. With our first North American project currently being deployed in Talbot, Ontario, I am confident that the combination of RES' development and construction experience and OCAS' cutting edge technology will help launch the OCAS concept in the industry. More importantly, this will help make the industry and our communities more aware that reducing the visual impact of wind farms is an important and responsible part of wind energy development," said <span class="xn-person">Gregory Erdmann</span>, Director of Sales for Wind Turbine Solutions at OCAS.</p>
