Oil & Gas Platforms
Oil & gas platforms make ideal areas for seabird roosts that cause significant sanitation issues and property damage. Manned and unmanned platforms also face safety and security issues when fishing boats get too close. Birds perch, feed and nest on unmanned platforms causing significant guano-related health concerns for maintenance workers and expensive cleanup costs.
The high costs of cleanup and repair due to wildlife-related damage, large penalties and bad publicity associated with harming wildlife, and the ineffectiveness of legacy deterrents, highlight the need for safer, more effective wildlife preservation and control solutions.
Originally developed for defense and public safety applications, LRAD systems are now in use around the world to more effectively preserve and control wildlife. Featuring advanced directionality and several volume settings LRAD is easily programmed to broadcast a wide variety of tones and predator calls to ensure against habituation and safely deter wildlife and fishermen from close range up to 3 kilometers.
When integrated with cameras, motion sensors, night vision and radar, LRAD-RX systems can be automated and remotely operated across an IP network providing platform operators a completely unmanned perimeter protection solution capable of safely deterring wildlife and human incursions.
By implementing LRAD systems into oil & gas platform wildlife control programs, birds are safely dispersed and move on to more suitable nesting grounds.
