Mitigation of Wind Farm Effects at London Southend Airport
To help find an acceptable interim mitigation for a proposed Wind Farm, London Southend Airport (LSA) approached Osprey as recognised leaders in Wind Turbine Mitigation methods. As part of their remit Osprey reviewed the potential capabilities of the local radar as well as other mitigation technologies in relation to the anticipated turbine effects and our Operational Requirement. Based on their assessment of the available solutions, the local airspace environment and the demanding project timescales, the use of a Non Automatic Initiation Zone (NAIZ) was proposed.
The solution has subsequently worked well and has proven itself to be the right decision for the mitigation of the Wind Farm.
LSA would readily recommend Osprey to any ANSP seeking supportive and informed assistance in establishing mitigation of Wind Turbines on Approach Radars.
