Reliably protect wind farms with video surveillance
In times of a new environmental awareness and with a focus on sustainability, renewable energies are becoming increasingly important. Electricity generation from wind turbines plays a major role here. In 2022, electricity generation from onshore wind power accounted for 39 per cent of gross electricity generation from renewable energy sources in Germany. Up to several hundred metres of cable are laid in a single wind turbine for this purpose. However, the trade in copper wires is a lucrative business and both wind turbines in operation and wind turbines still under construction are frequent targets for theft. In addition to copper wires, thieves also target expensive equipment such as construction cranes, tools and fuel.
The damage is often enormous: in addition to the actual material damage, there are also postponements during the construction phase, loss of earnings and expensive repair costs. In addition, the topic of wind energy is not always well received. Time and again, protests have resulted in vandalism. The often remote location of the wind turbines plays into the hands of the perpetrators. The consequences range from daubs of paint to the destruction of parts of the turbine.
Whether theft, sabotage or vandalism – tampering with wind turbines harbours high risks for the operators and often means danger to life for the intruders. It is therefore essential for wind turbine operators to invest in the security of their turbines. Mobile video surveillance systems enable seamless monitoring of large areas and can be used 24 hours a day. This makes them a cost-effective alternative or supplement to conventional security guards. The camera systems can also be supplemented with other useful warning systems such as fire alarm systems. This ensures even more security and cost savings. Trips to the system can be reduced to only when necessary.
Why is video surveillance important in wind farms?
Video surveillance of wind farms plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety, efficiency and protection of this vital infrastructure. Wind farms cover large areas and are often located in remote areas, making them vulnerable to a variety of security risks. In Germany, wind turbines are widespread and contribute significantly to a sustainable energy supply. It is therefore of the utmost importance to optimise the security and integrity of wind farms.
Our advanced video surveillance systems for wind farms offer the ideal solution to maximise the security of your installations. At a time when renewable energy is playing a key role, it is vital to protect your valuable wind turbines and infrastructure. Our systems not only ensure reliable monitoring, but can also send immediate alerts in the event of suspicious incidents.
Theft and vandalism are unfortunately a sad reality in the world of wind energy. Such incidents can not only cause considerable financial losses, but also jeopardise the smooth operation of your turbines. Our video surveillance solutions are ideally designed to minimise these risks and enable a rapid response to incidents.
Our systems are easy and flexible to install and can be easily customised to meet the specific requirements of your wind farm. We offer customised and self-sufficient solutions to ensure that your turbines are optimally protected. Thanks to our video surveillance, you can not only increase security, but also boost the efficiency of your wind farms by recognising and addressing potential problems at an early stage.

How protection for wind turbines works with LivEye
LivEye effectively protects wind turbines and wind farms with its uninterrupted video surveillance system. Regardless of the size of the wind farm, our video surveillance system offers reliable protection against intruders. It accurately captures large areas and reliably distinguishes between human activity, animals, vehicles and recurring movements.
The eye-catching orange lighting alone acts as a deterrent and preventative measure. However, should someone gain unauthorised access, our continuously manned Video Monitoring & Alarm Centre is notified immediately. The operator responsible checks the signal and acts accordingly. Potential intruders are first asked to leave the premises by means of live announcements. If this request is not complied with, the police are notified immediately.
Our video surveillance towers are usually inactive outside regular surveillance times. We also offer the “Smart by Day” option. With this function, our mobile video surveillance systems can be used during the day as a virtual camera for your wind farm or during the construction of a wind farm installation. This enables comprehensive documentation of the project and allows project managers to monitor construction progress in real time from any location.
LivEye provides wind farm operators with a reliable and efficient video surveillance solution that ensures the safety of both individual wind turbines and large wind farms.
