The New York State Thruway Authority announced Thursday that it has filed a lawsuit against multiple agencies for the failure of four wind turbines in Western New York.

The lawsuit has been filed against Vergnet,S.A., Prudent Engineering, LLP, Ravi Engineering & L.S., P.C., Kandey Company, Inc. and CHA Consulting, Inc./Clough Harbor & Assoc. LLP, alleging negligence, professional malpractice, breach of warranty and breach of contract.

Four turbines went off line between October 2017 and January 2018. They are located on Thruway Authority property at exit 61 (Ripley – Shortman Road), exit 59 (Dunkirk – Fredonia – NY Route 60), exit 58 (Silver Creek – Irving – NY Routes 5, 20 & 438, and exit 57A (Eden – Angola).

2 On Your Side’s Dave McKinley did an original report into the inoperative turbines earlier this year when a spokesperson for the thruway authority told 2 On Your Side that, “The Thruway Authority is in discussions with the manufacturer about the replacement parts.”
