Wind turbine fire in the Netherlands claims lives of two

WInd turbine fire at the 21 MW Piet Wit wind farm on the Dutch island of Goeree Vlakke. A video of the burning turbine and flaming debris can be seen here. Two technicians lost their lives as a result of the fire at the Deltawind’s 21MW Piet de Wit wind farm near Ooltgensplaat in the Netherlands. The two mechanics (ages 19 and 21) were working on one of 12 Vestas V66-1.75MW turbines when the fire erupted. Deltawind suggested a short circuit on the unit could have caused the fire but no official report has been released. The project was undergoing scheduled maintenance.
