Wind Turbines Taller Than the Statue of Liberty Are Falling Over
Posted by Staff of goGardenNow on
According to Bloomberg - Businessweek, "Wind Turbines Taller Than the Statue of Liberty Are Falling Over."
In summary, there has been " a rash of recent wind turbine malfunctions across the US and Europe, ranging from failures of key components to full collapses. Some industry veterans say they’re happening more often, even if the events are occurring at only a small fraction of installed machines. The problems have added hundreds of millions of dollars in costs for the three largest Western turbine makers, GE, Vestas Wind Systems and Siemens Energy’s Siemens Gamesa unit; and they could result in more expensive insurance policies—a potential setback for the push to abandon fossil fuels and fight climate change."
