Dilapidated Panhandle wind farm towers to be cleaned up  

Credit:  AP | July 25, 2021 | apnews.com ~~

The owner of a dilapidated Oklahoma Panhandle wind farm has presented plans to clean up the most dangerous of the wind turbine towers.

The plans are to address dangerously broken-down towers and turbines of the 60-tower KODE Novus I and II wind farm near Guymon, Oklahoma, The Oklahoman reported.

Owner Olympia Renewable Platform LLC has hired a contractor to remove broken blades from seven towers and topple a couple of others topped with burned-out generator nacelles. The company assured the repair work could begin next month and take 20 to 30 days to complete, depending on wind conditions.

Dozens of wind turbines in the complex have been locked down and aren’t part of the cleanup plan.

Oklahoma Corporation Commission officials have determined that the dilapidated wind towers are dangerous to the public, which had easy access to the scene until Olympia erected temporary fencing around it.

The complex was developed and owned by a subsidiary of a South Korean company until it went bankrupt.
