The nacelle of a Vestas V112 3MW turbine caught fire on 15 October at the 27MW Xangri-la wind farm in the southern Rio Grande do Sul state of Brazil.
A spokesman for the Danish manufacturer said no injuries or other material damage occurred as a result of the fire.
“Vestas is conducting a thorough investigation to determine the cause of the fire,” he said.
“We have already begun examining data from the turbine, and a team of experts will soon arrive in Brazil to support the investigation,” he added.
