A test version of MHI Vestas’ V164, the world’s most powerful windturbine, has caught fire at a test centre in the west of Denmark.

“Our technicians and experts will look into what has caused the fire,” a Vestas spokesman told Reuters, declining to comment further.

The V164 model is MHI Vestas’ top model designed to challenge Siemens Gamesa, the market leader in the growing offshore market.
