IRIS performs the first flights at the facilities of Ángel Camacho (Seville)

Tags : 

During the first days of December IRIS started flights in Spain on the estates that the Angel Camacho Group has in Cuarterola and Cucanoche, both in Seville. It is in these estates where the Angel Camacho Group has installed two of its three autonomous lasers, on two towers of several meters high.

Despite the bad environmental conditions, IRIS was able to successfully complete the flights over the areas of influence of lasers, indicated by the technical team of Angel Camacho and CUDEMA.

Due to the poor state of the terrain, caused by the heavy rains, the IRIS and Ángel Camacho teams decided not to fly over Eoloarroz, the third farm where one of the autonomous lasers has been installed.

Notice boards for dissemination of Laser Fence

Tags : 

Volterra has designed the notice boards which are a valuable tool to disseminate information about the project to indirect stakeholders and the wider public.

At five of the six trial sites the partners have placed a notice board with a description of the project in Spanish and English. Additionally, two project partners have placed a smaller sized copy (A3) of the notice board at their office in their respective working languages.

A pdf version of the notice boards is available through our download section.

Below you can see the installation of notice boards at our partners´ facilities and trial sites.

Volterra promotes Laser Fence Project to key players in the farm industry in Spain

Tags : 

Sven Kallen and Egbert Sonneveld were invited to the event ‘challenges and opportunities in application of technology on farm land’ in Carmona on last October 6th. They got the opportunity to present the Life Laser Fence project and especially Agrilaser Handheld and Autonomic to Fran Gálvez, Managing Director of Galpagro and to Pedro Palazón, Technical Director of Ideagro. Both are agricultural consultancy companies very much into sustainable solutions on the farm. Galpagro works close together with project partner Angel Camacho group who was invited as well but finally could not attend.

Both Ideagro and Galpagro expressed that they are looking forward to see the positive results of the project in Cucanoche, Cuarterola and Eolo Arroz. They confirmed that wild life, both mammals and birds, are a problem for today’s agriculture. Probably the animals can be directed to areas where they are less harmful.
