Lanthan Safe Sky Looks Back At A Successful Founding Year And Begins A New One Full Of Potential


Reading Time: <1 minutes

Lanthan Safe Sky was founded in spring of this year with the objective of providing dark night skies to both nature and
residents living close to wind turbines, and by the same token ensuring the security of those utilizing the lower airspace. The achievement of these goals is being made possible through the innovative technology of the Aircraft
Detection Warning System (in short transponder ADLS), which was developed by team members and ensures that obstacle warning lights on wind turbines only shine when an aircraft is close by. “Even in the airspace close to airports
we are able to reach beaconing off-time periods on average of 98%, in many cases close to 100%“, explains general manager Mitja Klatt. “Through these endeavors we hope to encourage a wider public acceptance for wind energy and
thus make a key contribution to the  transition to renewable energy.”

The present record of success of this young start-up, which began as a joint venture between the established companies Air Avionics, Recase and Lanthan, speaks for itself. From a team of 12 experts in the areas of aviation,
aviation obstruction markers, project management and wind energy, LSS has grown to include over thirty employees. As the first supplier of a transponder based ADLS system to have passed through all the licensing and approval
processes, Lanthan Safe Sky was able to secure orders to equip more than 3000 wind turbines.

“Meanwhile we have been able to complete the retrofitting of several projects and parallel to this we are currently managing the implementation of almost one hundred more. This success is not only based on our expertise, but
also on absolute cost transparency for our customers. Our offers are individually tailored from single WTGs up to complete parks and there are no hidden costs. We offer our products fully licensed, which means there are no
patent related risks for the operators. Additionally, we provide support for the approval process at the location with extensive documentation as required by each local authority, without the client incurring additional costs”,
reports Steven Siemen, lead project management at Lanthan Safe Sky GmbH. “In cases where the authorities require a report from an independent appraiser, we provide our clients with support to apply for these at external registration

For 2021, the company has once again set ambitious goals. Production and project implementation will successively be increased, ensuring customers the possibility of extensive and widespread retrofitting with the tailored ADLS
system, one year in advance of the statutory deadline to do so. Lanthan Safe Sky will be continually optimizing their processes and offers through new partnerships. In addition, new products are in the pipeline, which are
intended to provide affordable solutions for smaller projects to make available the Lathan Safe Sky transponder based ADLS system.

Mitja Klatt is looking forward to these challenges and looks optimistically to the future. “ The trust already emplaced in us by our clients makes us proud and motivates us to defend our position as market leader in ADLS systems and
to convince even more customers of our solutions.”
