To ensure safe navigation around windfarms, wind turbines that exceed 150 metres above ground level and 60 metres offshore generally need to be marked with obstacle lighting. Visual information must be clear and unambiguous however many factors affect obstruction marking requirements including weather, terrain and proximity to airports.
Orga has a solid reputation for smart, reliable and robust lighting and marking solutions for onshore and offshore wind farms. Designed to operate in harsh environments, our high, medium and low intensity lights use advanced LED optical technology to meet international and national regulations including ICAO, FAA and UK CAA, deliver optimum performance and lower the total cost of ownership.
Most offshore wind turbines require the same light specifications as onshore projects. However if you need to meet special national requirements (e.g. Germany, UK) we have the product version you need to comply with country specific regulations.
To complement our range of aviation obstruction lights we have, in collaboration with UK CAA, developed a new status light to ensure safe helicopter hoist operations on UK offshore wind turbine platforms. Compliant with draft UK CAA CAP437 standards, the light provides pilots with visual confirmation that the wind turbine is fully shut down and in safe mode to allow winching to commence.

The way ahead with a fresh look
We are proud of our heritage of 45 years as trusted partner in solutions for marking assets and landing areas to ensure safe operations. Now it was time to reflect our ongoing strive for innovation and vibrant relationships in a brand new identity. We want our brand to reflect our values and capabilities in protecting people, assets and the environment. You will notice new and refreshed identity elements like our logo and brighter colours. The yellow reflects a linkage to signaling and safety marking. We kept our lower case Orga letters referring to our heritage and DNA.
The new brand identity will be introduced over the coming period. An important step will be a new website which will be launched soon. The new site will be more inspiring and user-friendly in demonstrating Orga’s solutions and proven track record. Stay tuned!
