No one was injured when a turbine tower collapsed on an Enefit Green wind farm under construction in Akmene, Lithuania, on Tuesday afternoon, Enefit Green said.

The management board was notified of the incident at 4:26 p.m.

One of the turbine towers, with a General Electric GE 158-5.X turbine, collapsed. There are no human casualties nor injuries, the company said.

“Enefit Green representatives together with representatives of turbine supplier General Electric and construction company Merko Statyba will work together to assess the damage and to establish the opinion about the root cause of the incident. Ambulance, fire brigade and police have been on site. A safety perimeter around the collapsed turbine tower has been established and the affected turbine has been disconnected from the grid,” the disclosure reads.

All wind turbines on the Akmene site remain stopped for the time being.

Listed Estonian company Enefit Green owns wind farms in Estonia and Lithuania, cogeneration plants in Estonia and Latvia, solar farms in Estonia and Poland, a pellet plant in Latvia and a hydroelectric plant in Estonia. In addition, the company is developing several wind and solar farms in the aforementioned countries and Finland.
