V164-9.5 MW - Østerild - stand 2 (onshore) Offshore Wind Farm

03 Nov 2017: MHI Vestas via an independent investigator has found the root cause to the turbine incident on 4th August 2017. The fire was caused by a 'faulty component that was damaged during installation within the prototype’s converter module, and that the procedure was unique to a prototype environment.' The root cause report concluded that the component, a standard industry component with a solid track record, was added solely as part of testing the prototype’s future upgrade to 9.5 MW. As such, none of MHI Vestas’ turbines currently in operation or under construction are at risk. MHI Vestas states that the release of the 9.5 MW turbine remains on schedule.
