What went wrong on Friday at 8:22 pm (CET) when the MHI Vestas V164 prototype went up in flames at the testing center in Østerild, Denmark? This question is on the minds of everyone in an entire industry, but it may take a long time to complete the investigations and determine the cause of the fire, several sources tell EnergyWatch.
Finding the cause of the fire on the V164 turbines is crucial, not least for the many energy companies which have invested huge sums in the turbine model. Although no company has yet placed an order for the extra powerful version of the V164 – the type that went up in flames with 9.5 MW capacity – this turbine is still based on the 8.0 MW platform that has been ordered by Dong, Vattenfall, Norther NV and others.
