Bird diverters manufactured by Industrias Arruti taken into use in Finland

DAA bird diverters manufactured by Industrias Arruti have been supplied for several 110 kV and 400 kV power lines in Finland. Diverters increase the visibility of earth wires, OPGW’s or phase conductors and they distract and divert birds away from the line. Light devices permit easy installation and cost-effective execution. Additionally, short delivery periods are allowed by the simplicity of the devices. Adherence as well as UV-stability of the diverters have been type tested. Bird diverters are available in white, grey, yellow, orange and red colours. Red is the most common colour used, since it stands out against a background of the sky, forest or clouds in all seasons of the year.
