Another blade damaged and fallen in the Metsälä wind facility (in Finnish)

Metsälän tuulivoimapuistossa on toisesta tuuliturbiinista pudonnut vaurioitunut lapa maahan [Still from video by Kai Ylikoski:] Metsälän tuulivoimapuistossa Kristiinankaupungissa on eilen sattunut toinen siiven rikkoutuminen, mikä on johtanut sen putoamiseen. Vastaava tapaus on käynyt aiemmin 5.9.2020. Kummankaan tapahtuman tarkasta syystä tai tapahtumaketjusta ei ole vielä tarkkaa selvyyttä. Tapahtuneen tutkintaa on hidastanut konehuoneen katolle jääneiden rikkoutuneiden osien muodostama putoamisriski. Lähiviikkoina paikalle saadaan nosturi, jonka avulla voimalan konehuoneen katto voidaan puhdistaa putoamisvaarassa olevista kappaleista. Tämän jälkeen tutkinnassa päästään enteenpäin. Vaurioituneiden voimaloiden lisäksi kaikkien . . . Complete story »

The risk of flooding and peat slides

I want to voice my concerns about the lamentable to non-existent response to the all too frequent failures of Viking Energy to control sediment run offs from its recent construction works. Every single time we have substantial rainfall, we have contaminated water running into our natural watercourses. Quite apart from the environmental damage, there is a real risk of the flood defences breaching promoting peat slides with perhaps fatal consequences. The A971 above Tresta and Weisdale Voe are under direct . . . Complete story »

Windrad stürzt 94 Meter ab

Schwanebeck (Sachsen-Anhalt) – ln einem Windpark im Harzkreis ist die tonnenschwere Rotornabe einer Windkraftanlage abgestürzt. Mit der Nabe fielen alle drei Rotorblätter 94 Meter tief. Verletzt wurde zum Glück keiner. Die Ursache des Unglücks muss noch ermittelt werden. Die verbleibenden 22 Strommühlen im Windpark bleiben weiter in Betrieb. In den Kommunen, die in der Nähe von Windparks liegen, besteht unterdessen die Angst, dass die Havarie kein Einzelfall bleiben wird.
