Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) is investigating a wind turbine collapse in the Vetlanda Municipality in Sweden.
The Lemnhult wind farm, built by Swedish wind power investor Stena Renewable AB, comprises total of 32 machines of the V112-3.0 MW model. One of them fell in the morning of December 24.
The reason for the collapse will be known after the full investigation has been completed, Vestas spokesman Michael Zarin told the Vetlanda-Posten. The local daily also cited Stena Renewables head Peter Zachrisson as saying that the damaged turbine is worth about SEK 40 million (USD 4.8m/EUR 4.3m).
