Losing the tower  

Credit:  23.08.2019 vertikal.net ~~

A mast/tower section from a large wind turbine came off its heavy transport trailer as it was being taken to a site in Northern Spain earlier this week, and rolled down the side of the mountain.

The incident occurred on the N-541 road between Carballiño and Pontevedra due south of Santiago de Compostela in north west Spain. The long four axle trailer came off the road on a bend, causing the tower section to break free. The four axle tractor unit remained on the road. The rig is owned and operated by Portuguese based company Laso.

Thankfully no one was injured in the incident, however we understand that a power line was brought down.
