UPDATE - Samsoe offshore wind park back online after turbine collapse
Siemens AG (ETR:SIE) has inspected the nine remaining 2.3-MW turbines at the Paludans Flak offshore wind farm in Denmark and they are now operational again, local media reported on Thursday.
On Saturday, one of the 10 wind turbines at the site near Samsoe island lost its blades and nacelle. It is not yet clear what caused the incident, but Siemens has determined that the other nine machines are fit to continue operation.
The wind turbines have been operational for about 12 years. They were produced by Bonus Energy A/S, which was acquired by Siemens near the end of 2004.
News portal ing.dk said that the wind turbines are insured by Codan, but coverage can be assessed only after the final accident report has been prepared. According to the report, the wind turbine tower has also sustained serious damage during the fall of the blades and nacelle.
