Wind turbine keels over in County Down  

Credit:  BBC News | 2 February 2017 | www.bbc.co.uk ~~

They are used to generate electricity and this wind turbine at Ballynahinch, County Down, sparked interest from a snapper after appearing to keel over.

The cause of the damage to the turbine near Begny Hill Road is still to be established.

But an eagle-eyed photographer was at the scene to capture what happened.

The NIdirect government website says it is best to have a turbine “high on a mast or tower, as wind speed increases with height”.

It adds that the “ideal site is a hill with a flat, clear exposure, free from strong turbulence and obstructions like large trees, houses or other buildings”.
