Ørsted launches probe after offshore wind turbine tilts

Ørsted has launched an investigation after one of the turbines and its foundation at the 165.6MW Nysted (Rødsand 1) offshore wind farm tilted.

The Siemens Gamesa SWT-2.3-82 turbine titled late on Wednesday (12 January) afternoon, the Danish developer confirmed.

Nysted is installed in the Baltic Sea, 10km from the shore of the south-east Danish island of Lolland.

Ørsted informed the Danish maritime authority about the incident. The authority has issued a warning to vessels in the waters to keep a safe distance.

No one was injured during the incident, and power consumers on Lolland have not been impacted, Ørsted stated.

The developer is investigating what caused the turbine to tilt.

Nysted was commissioned in 2003 and its 72 turbines are installed on gravity-based foundations, which use ballast to moor turbines to the seabed. It is the only one of Ørsted’s wind farms to use this foundation type.
