security risks for wind farms

What kind of security risks does a wind farm face?

The remote location and the profitable components of the turbines are some of the reasons that a wind farm is an attractive target for crimes. Moreover, the security mechanism that are installed to keep out intruders are not sufficient. That’s why you should invest in a high-quality CCTV tower wind farm security.

The risks occur from the beginning of the construction phase. At that point thieves are after the valuable items, such as copper, machinery or tools. The lack of equipment can cause delay to the construction process, which will lead to extra costs. Even when the wind farm is fully built and active, there are many risks that need to be accounted for. The lack of security causes different threats, like unauthorized control of the wind farm and damage to the inside and outside of the turbines . Hackers can easily get access to the network which can cause a temporary disruption. Contact us if you want more information about the security of wind farms.

It’s a fact that wind farms are at great risk for vandalism, theft and other crimes. It’s impossible to prevent intruders from attempting to enter your wind park, but you can invest in security solutions to detect the trespassers when they want to gain access to your property.

Wind farm security company with 24/7 remote monitoring

Our solutions are connected to our own Kooi Alarm Center with remote CCTV monitoring. We find it important to assess the security footage ourselves, in order to guarantee the best service to secure your windfarm.

Our security personnel will act accordingly to the extent of the threat. They will always try to deter the intruders with the built-in speaker, lights and alarm, which is proven to be a suitable means against criminals. Only in extreme cases, when the intruder refuses to leave, the centralists will contact the police. We can draw up a tailor-made plan to map out your personal needs.

Effective and inexpensive security systems for wind farms

Wind farms are often built in a remote location that cover a large areas. It’s quite expensive to hire enough security guards who can secure the entire surface of your wind farm. Our camera systems with a range of 30.000m2 can cover a large area at once, minimizing the costs of manpowered security guards.

When an intruder has gained the access to the wind turbine, it is usually to late to intervene. When our system detects an unexpected movement, a notification will be sent to the control room. This enables to act before the intruder has a chance enter and damage the wind turbines. Therefore, our security systems for wind farms are more effective and inexpensive compared to traditional guarding systems. Let us prepare a non-binding offer to determine the costs of wind farm security.

external energy sources to power the devices

External power sources to power the devices

You don’t have to worry about the power supply of your wind farm security devices. Because most windmills are located outside, we can imagine that you don’t have access to the mains. That’s why we provide a suitable external power source to supply the security system with energy.

We offer three different solutions. The first option is the aggregate or as we call it the power box, that is suitable for every terrain. Because the windfarm is exposed to sunlight, you can also choose the second and environment friendly option: the solar power unit. This device provides a suitable amount of electricity through solar panels. The third option consists of a combination of the previous solutions, the hybrid power box. Without the right weather conditions, this power source will switch to an low-noise generator. In a free security check we can determine the right power supply.

Frequently asked questions

 

Are there additional costs associated with direct follow-up?

By direct follow-up we need the actions we take to contact the police or the fire brigade. There are no additional costs connected to this, because it’s included in our complete service package for wind farm security. 

What happens after an incident occurs?

Our centralists receive a message in case of a suspicious circumstances. Whenever this occurs, they will assess the threat and act accordingly to handle the situation. After the problem is solved, we will provide you with an extensive report about the incident. You can use this as evidence for any insurance issue. 

Who has access to the wind farm security footage?

Our customers don’t have access to the security footage. The centralists at the Kooi Alarm Center have sole authority to the camera images from the CCTV Towers. However, we will always keep you informed of developments.  

Can the security system also be installed at an offshore wind farm?

Because the offshore wind tends to be more powerful than on land, there are a lot of wind farms that are based on the sea. It’s likely that these parks are at lower risk of intruders, because they can’t be reached that easily. When you decide to secure the offshore wind farm, this is possible due to our external power sources. These devices can be installed on every conceivable terrain, as long as there is enough space to place the device.

Does the wind farm security also protect against fire hazards?

The wind farm security system is not meant to protect the site against fire hazards. The camera systems are equipped with infrared cameras that can detect movement day and night. When you are looking for an advanced fire detection system, you can choose our RED: Rising Early Detection. However, this solution is mostly used in waste processing and large scale laundry facilities. There is a continuous connection with our alarm center, so it is likely that the fire would be detected by the wind farm security.
