    Offshore wind farm developer to monitor farm’s impact on migratory birds (2020/06/05)

    A wind farm off the coast of Yunlin is set to become the biggest in the Asia Pacific region when it's complete in 2021. But ecologists are concerned that the impact of the farm on migratory birds is still unknown. They say birds could have their flight paths disturbed, or might even be killed by the turbines. The farm's developer, a German renewable energy firm, has now commissioned a study to try to determine the impact of the project on birds. Through artificial intelligence and infrared imaging, experts hope they can ascertain how the birds react to the farm.

    A flock of black birds stretches and twists over the sea. It’s a mesmerizing sight to behold. Migratory birds fly in and out of Taiwan with the seasons, but some wonder whether their paths could be disturbed by Taiwan’s wind farms. The German developer of Yunlin’s offshore wind farm has commissioned a survey from Taiwanese analysts WeatherRisk Explore and the Japan Weather Association.

    In the past, besides working on weather monitoring and forecasting, we also used our technology to monitor the paths of migratory birds. For example, we used AI to do image recognition, and made assessments with infrared thermal imaging taken at night.

    Located in the sea off Yunlin, the NT$94 billion wind farm project is expected to be up and running in 2021. But environmentalists worry the farm could disturb bird migrations or even injure the birds themselves.

    Taiwan has never really had any exhaustive data on bird migration. It’s all just broad descriptions. But now, we can grasp it all in real time. We can even tell clearly whether a bird has crashed into a wind turbine. Basically this is the first ecological project conducted on the largest wind farm in the Asia Pacific region. We hope it’ll be successful. Many Taiwanese experts in artificial intelligence, ornithology and meteorology will all come together to contribute.

    The developer has set aside a budget of NT$70 million for the survey over three years. They hope the renewable energy project will have as little impact on the environment as possible.

    離岸風機與鳥遷徙影響 開發商跨國調查監測

    台灣積極推動綠能,其中斥資940億興建的雲林離岸風電,預計明年將能全線運轉,不過,有生態環保專家擔心,離岸風機會影響鳥類遷徙路線、甚至發生鳥擊。負責此開發的德商能源公司,特別委託國内天氣風險管理公司和日本氣象協會跨國合作,進行鳥類調查,未來將導入AI技術,提高監測。

    黑壓壓的鳥群在海面上方,蔚為奇觀。候鳥過境該怎麼飛?遷徙路線會不會影響到風力發電機組?負責雲林離岸風電的德國開發商,委託天氣風險管理公司和日本氣象協會,將啟動大調查。

    [[經濟部政務次長 曾文生]]
    “過去我們努力在做天氣的觀測跟預測以外,也針對鳥類的一些飛行路徑,用科學的方法來做出觀測,比方說,我們用AI來做影像辨識、用夜間用紅外線熱影像,來做一些判斷。”

    位在雲林外海,斥資940億興建的風場預計明年將能全線運轉,但有生態環保專家擔憂,離岸風機會影響鳥類遷徙路線、甚至發生鳥擊。

    [[天氣風險管理公司總經理 彭啟明]]
    “台灣過去並沒有很詳盡的鳥類遷徙的資料,只不過是一個大方向,這次是可以很即時的,甚至鳥有沒有碰到風機,都可以很清楚的知道。所以這個是一個,算是亞太地區最大風場的第一個生態的案例,我們希望它可以成功。所以這個未來會用到台灣本地很多的AI人才,或是鳥類的人才,氣象的人才一起合作。”

    為了調查鳥類,這回德商和國內民間天氣公司合作,以3年近7000萬的預算,進行調查,希望在發展再生能源下,盡量降低對環境的影響。
