Vestas has launched an investigation into a blade loss from one of its turbines at the 24MW Bindesbøl 1 wind farm in the Tarm area of western Denmark.

The turbine manufacturer said a blade broke from a V90 3MW machine on 26 December during a storm.

A “root cause” probe is underway, a spokesman said.

“No injuries occurred and the site has been secured. At this point it appears to be an isolated, individual turbine failure,” the spokesman said.

The wind farm features eight V90 3MW turbines. The remaining seven machines are all operating normally.
