Invenergy, owner of the Prairie Breeze Wind Energy wind farm, issued a statement Wednesday, May 7, regarding the recent failure of blades on two separate wind turbine towers. The statement was made following an inquiry on the replacement of defective GE blades this past winter.

“The turbine manufacturer, General Electric (GE), had determined that a limited number of blades on turbines at the Prairie Breeze Wind Energy Center needed to be replaced due to a manufacturing defect, and completed doing so this past winter.”

Officials at GE and Invenergy have declined to state the number of wind turbine blades found to be defective and replaced during the winter months.
