LOGIC INSTRUMENT pioneers on the high sea
Since April 2010 the Alpha Ventus, Germanys first offshore wind power plant, is online. The wind farm is located 45km (27mi) northwest of Borkum in the German economic zone and a total of twelve wind turbines provide electricity for 50,000 households. Since the Alpha Ventus is Germany's first offshore wind farm, there are numerous analyzes and investigations all around this pilot project with the regard to future offshore plant constructions and operations. Particularly the environmental protection is kept under close observation as the open sea and coastal areas are important and worth protecting habitats for numerous animal species.
During the analyzes, IBL Umweltplanung GmbH from Oldenburg, an environmental planning office, deals with the changes of the living conditions of marine mammals as well as resting and migrating birds in the area around the power plant. The scientists collect the relevant data directly from their ships while they particularly are exposed to harsh weather conditions. Waves, strong winds and water spray not only complicate the work of the environmental scientists, but also demand a high level of ruggedness from the technical equipment.
The company therefor has decided to rely on the rugged notebooks V100 and B300 from LOGIC INSTRUMENT that guaranty to resist the for mobile computers unusual harsh weather conditions. In addition, the notebooks are equipped with an integrated accurate GPS to track the exact positions where the researchers had collected their data and through the specially developed software they can transmit their findings directly from the ship to the centralized database even under the most adverse circumstances - so Logic Instrument's rugged notebooks contribute to a significant increase of efficiency for the work on the high sea.
