5 Wind Turbines which Failed (Enviromental friendly?)

Windmill Failures

Nearly 120 wind turbines catch fire each year, according to a research – ten times the number reported by the industry. The researchers claim that out of 200,000 turbines around the world, 117 fires take place annually – far more than what is reported by wind farm companies.

Fire has a huge financial impact on the industry; Each wind turbine costs more than £2 million and generates an estimated income of more than £500,000 per year. Any loss or downtime of these valuable assets makes the industry less viable and productive.

Fires are a problem for the industry, impacting on energy production, economic output and emitting toxic fumes, this could cast a shadow over the industry’s green credentials. Wind turbines catch fire because highly flammable materials such as hydraulic oil and plastics are in close proximity to machinery and electrical wires. These can ignite a fire if they overheat or are faulty. Lots of oxygen, in the form of high winds, can quickly fan a fire inside a turbine.

  1. i got a solution after watching a movie, lets call Thanos, he for sure solves the problem. With lower ppl asking for energy there would be less wind turbines which would also reduce the thermal power plants which support them and with lower energy needed there would be also lower base power plants which meas less nuclear plants and this would be a happy planet.

  2. im pretty sure this first one is being demolished. they obviously had dug under it to cut the foundation

  3. There's only three incidences of failure shown the rest is something else like just a lightning striking the sky a farmer pulling one over a bird getting its wings clipped by a blade so you suck not normal suck you suck tremendously so wrap your arm around King Kong monkey dick and make a video for everyone to see how much you suck. Happy Hanukkah you retard

  4. What about oil spills where one can do so much more damage than one burning turbine as well as coal mines

  5. You do realise that anything that you see on the Net is more concentrated so to speak than what is normal, right?
    For instance, Russian dashcam footage, going by this footage alone I can say that there must be about ten thousand Ladas' written off in Russia every week, however that is simply not possible.
    Like I said, concentrated, you see five failures in five clips, but there are millions of these things all over the world with only a few failures a year perhaps, don't know the exact figures, someone mentioned earlier that most of the failures result from poor build quality and poor maintenance, after all they are man made.
    The fact is that wind farms and other types of renewable energy are far less damaging to the environment than fossil fuel type energy production, I am still on the fence, as it were, about nuclear energy production but with tecnological advances this form of power production will get safer in the future.
    Cheers. 😊😊

  6. The Centralia Pa. coal mine fire has been burning since 1962, with no way to put it out. It may burn for hundreds of years. I'll take a few minor wind turbine fires instead.

  7. First clip was on purpose, second clip is cause birds are retarded, third clip was because they are Russian, fourth cause it can't reach super sain god level, last cause of mixtape
