Faulty blade that caused wind turbine collapse cost company $6M
The turbine collapsed in January leading to a review of all 70 turbines in Chatham-Kent
A faulty blade that caused a wind turbine to topple in Chatham-Kent cost the company that runs the operation millions of dollars.
Earlier this year, a turbine snapped in half because of a "single faulty blade," according to a TerraForm spokesperson.
TerraForm's first quarter results said the failure cost the company about $6-million in cash which would normally be distributed to shareholders.
The company halted operation of all 70 turbines at the Raleigh wind facility for nearly two months after the collapse of the turbine.
They said their investigation found no similar issues.
