Working in harmony with aviation
The growing number of wind farms worldwide shows the importance of this renewable energy resource. NATS is a keen supporter of clean energy generation and offers many services to help wind farm owners, developers and the aviation industry to operate in harmony.
There are a number of ways in which wind farms can have an impact on the safety of the air traffic services we provide. These include problems on Air Traffic Radar Displays such as clutter, reduced sensitivity and overloading of processing functions; as well as the degradation of voice communications facilities and en-route navigation aids.
Our services range from pre-planning to training and mitigation strategies, to ensure both industries can operate efficiently without any adverse effects on each other.
