Siemens Wind Power has been hit by yet another fire in Jutland, Denmark – this time at its plant in Engesvang.
Saturday afternoon’s blaze was the fourth at Siemens’ wind operations in Jutland this year.
The fire started when four mandrels caught fire in the plant’s external area, a police spokesperson told Recharge.
A wind turbine blade placed close to the mandrels also caught alight.
The fire was under control in about 20 minutes and despite a lot of black smoke, it did not constitute any danger to buildings or people, according to local reports.
The police have already satisfied themselves that no criminal activity occurred and will not be investigating further, added the spokesperson.
