Cause determined in Ohio wind farm mishap

We now know why two blades on a wind turbine in Payne, Ohio on April 24 failed.

Vestas – American Wind Technology worked with EDPR and local authorities to find answers.

The first blade fell from a turbine in April because of a manufacturing defect and caused damage to a second blade because of overload. All 55 turbines on the Timber Road II Wind Farm in Payne were shut down at the time. No other evidence of damage was found.

Monday, June 4, 54 turbines were turned back on.
