December 15, 2013
Liebherr Hausgeraete Maritsa, a German-Swiss multinational equipment manufacturer established in 1949, entrusted Volacom with supplying a complete bird protection solution on the rooftop of its manufacturing facility near Plovdiv, Bulgaria. A Volacom team of experts assessed the site and conducted an environmental study, based on which a bird control concept for the building was drafted and approved by the management of Liebherr. The project was completed and the systems commissioned in December 2013.
Volacom will collect statistical data and analyze the results for a period of one year, making adjustments to the pilot system if necessary.
