Vattenfall, Orsted probe Horns Rev 1 fire 

Credit:  28 May 2021 | renews.biz ~~

Vattenfall and Orsted are investigating a turbine fire at the 160MW Horns Rev 1 offshore wind farm off Denmark.

A single turbine caught fire on 22 May, according to the Swedish utility. Eight Vestas V80 units are employed at the project.

There were no employees at the site at the time and no one was injured.

“An investigation has been launched into the cause of the incident and the best course of action going forward,” added a statement from Vattenfall.

“So far, a 500 meter safety zone has been established around the mill, in which ships are not allowed to travel.”

The company added: “Given the incident’s limitation to one wind turbine, the overall supply of electricity from the park was not affected.”

Horns Rev 1 is located in the North Sea 20 kilometres from Jutland’s west coast.

The park, jointly owned by the Swedish and Danish developers, was commissioned in 2002.
