A Senvion MM70 turbine caught fire at Innogy UK Renewables’ eight-turbine Knabs Ridge wind farm in North Yorkshire on 6 January.

An Innogy spokesman said four of the 2MW turbines are currently operating and three are currently isolated as they are on the same string as the damaged turbine.

“We will assess putting the three back into operation in due course,” said the spokesman.

The 16MW wind farm near Harrogate was commissioned in 2008.
