Wind OEM Vestas has launched an investigation after one of its latest turbines collapsed over the weekend in Sweden.

The V150 4.2MW came down late on Saturday evening amid high winds at the Aldermyrberget wind farm in northern Sweden after apparently buckling near the base of the tower, said developer Wpd.

Nobody was hurt in the incident which was reported by a snow-clearance worker on the site at the time and no other turbines were damaged, Maria Roske, CEO of Wpd in Sweden told Recharge.
