A £250,000 wind turbine collapsed in Bradworthy, North Devon in the early hours of Sunday morning due to 80km/hmph winds.
The 35m 50kW Endurance Wind Power E3120 turbine was installed on East Ash farm in 2010 by renewable energy company Dulas after receiving planning permission from Torridge council.
“We can reassure the local community that due to the isolated location of the turbine, no one was put at risk and we are currently working hard to establish the precise cause of the incident,” said Dulasin a statement.
“Our technical team is one of the most experienced in the UK. They are working alongside the turbine manufacturer to conduct a full root cause analysis investigation.”
