Vestas dismantles giant turbine

MHI Vestas dismantled its V164 prototype in the Østerild test center for large-scale wind turbines on August 15, after the wind turbine burned out on August 4. The wind turbine manufacturer is now starting a survey to determine the cause of the fire.

It is not known when the result is available.
"We examined many different scenarios with the investigation teams on how to best determine and confirm the cause of the incident. We follow the recommendation from the leading investigators who have a great deal of expertise in this area and have decided that this is the best solution for the investigation to continue," says Torben Hvid Larsen, Chief Technology Officer at MHI Vestas.

The investigation team recommended MHI Vestas that the safest and most effective way to determine the cause of the fire would be to dismantle the turbine. MHI Vestas has not stated which V164 prototype it is, but according to the information on the Østerild Test Center website, it is the newly launched 9.5 MW type being tested on-site.
