Credit:  December 4, 2012 | www.vertikal.net ~~

A fatal wind farm incident happened yesterday morning at 10am on a site in Mannhagen, northern Germany. The operator of the Felbermayr owned Liebherr crawler crane was killed when a blade dropped onto the cab during the installation of Vestas turbines.

A statement from Vestas Wind Systems A/S said: “It is not clear at this point what caused the accident. Vestas takes safety extremely seriously and our experts will, together with the crane company and authorities conduct a thorough investigation to establish the root cause of this accident. Vestas has furthermore contracted a third party to conduct an independent investigation”.

Vestas says it will provide further updates on the accident one the ‘root cause analysis’ has been carried out.
