Seeba fixes Dollerup blaze turbine 

Credit:  27/08/2014 | renews.biz ~~

SeebaWIND has repaired a turbine at the 5MW Dollerup wind farm (pictured) in Germany that suffered fire damage.

The company served as project manager and worked “with several manufacturers, appraisers and other service providers” on the 1.5MW machine in the district of Schleswig-Flensburg.

SeebaWIND technicians restored the upper section of the 65-metre tower after the damaged rotor blades and machine housing had been dismantled and unusable parts disposed of. The new rotor blades were manufactured by SINOI.

Staff also helped accident assessors, along with the state criminal investigation department, identify the cause of the fire.

Accident assessor Harald Eden said: “An electrical short-circuit between the power cables caused the fire in the machine housing. The seebaWIND team assisted in a friendly and competent way while we were searching for the cause of the fire.”

Thomas Jensen from the operating company Dollerup Bürgerwindpark GmbH added: “For plants with serious fire damage, one always anticipates unexpected problems. For example, specific rotor blades had to be fabricated anew, since the MD70 series has not been built for about seven years.”
