Giant Wind Turbines Keep Mysteriously Falling Over. This Shouldn't Be Happening.

Tim Newcomb Mon, January 23, 2023 at 11:04 AM MST

“The taller the wind turbine, the harder they fall. And they sure are falling.

Wind turbine failures are on the uptick, from Oklahoma to Sweden and Colorado to Germany, with all three of the major manufacturers admitting that the race to create bigger turbines has invited manufacturing issues, according to a report from Bloomberg.”

“Multiple turbines that are taller than 750 feet are collapsing across the world, with the tallest—784 feet in stature—falling in Germany in September 2021. ”

“Turbines are falling for the three largest players in the industry: General Electric, Vestas, and Siemens Gamesa. ”

“Vestas has seen project delays and quality challenges, and GE has seen an uptick in warranty costs and repairs. And this all comes along with uncertain supply chain issues and fluctuating material pricing. ”

My comment: I’m sure that all the companies are looking for a Fall Guy.

You construct something that looks like a giant inverted pendulum, place enormous spinning blades on it .... then are surprised when it fails .... crazy.
