The CROCFAST® bird diverter increases the visibility of the overhead line, by incorporating bright colours, motion, and glowing light, acting as a visual early warning system. Smaller birds are nimble enough to make last minute flight adjustments, but our larger migratory birds can collide with power lines, with fatal consequences.
CROCFAST® bird diverters are used across the world, to prevent bird collisions with overhead powerlines. Where electrical infrastructure meets avian habitats or migration paths, bird collisions are inevitable. In addition to reducing bird populations, bird collisions can cause damage to electrical equipment and costly power outages.
If you need overhead line protection, get in touch so we can best advise on the product most suitable for your application, and the recommended installation method. Our products have been installed on every continent, and we are happy to provide technical support.
Drones have revolutionised bird diverter installations, and fitting is quick, safe and cost effective. Once hard-to-access sites, such as mountains or wetlands, are easily reached by drone.
CROCFAST ® clamps are still easily installed by hand, either by climbing towers, from cherry pickers, and from helicopters. or, lower overhead lines can be accessed with a hot-stick and fitting tool.
With full training and CAA permissions for commercial operations, drone flights are safe.
Using drones takes less time to install bird diverters. Using a cutting edge payload drone we can install up to 400 bird diverters per day.
Drones have cut the costs of bird diverter installation, with smaller crews, less time on site, and no requirements for rigging crews or helicopters.
Drones can easily traverse rugged terrain and wetlands, where traditional equipment simply cannot go.
Trust the experts to deliver your bird diverter installation safely, within budget and on time.
