The future is Green Energy, they say. Like the Endurance Endurance Wind Power E-3120 50kW which made it through three years before being tipped over by a force that its designers could never have anticipated it would encounter.
The £250,000 tower, which stood as tall as a six storey building, was hit by gale force gusts of 50mph. The structure then collapsed at a farm in Bradworth, Devon, leaving a “mangled wreck”. Installed by renewable energy company Dulas it was supposed to have a life expectancy of 25 years.
They neglected however to maintain that 22 years of that life would be as a mangled rusting wreck that would exist only to make a mockery of everything that it once represented. Much like Al Gore.
This isn’t the first time a wind turbine has spectacularly failed. This video from Denmark captures the collapse of a Nordtank NKT 600-180/43.
Here’s one catching on fire.
Green clean sustainable energy. It’s the future. For three years anyway. Then it blows up and you have to replace it.
