Brazil - 8 wind turbines collapse in high wind conditions

A storm that hit the Rio Grande do Sul with winds of 250 km / h (155 mph) dropped eight turbines at the Wind Complex Cerro Chato Eletrosul in Santana do Livramento, a town 492 kilometers from Porto Alegre. Enercon GmbH’s Wobben Windpower erected the first 45 wind turbines (Enercon model E-82 2 MW) at the site beginning in 2010. Prior to this latest incident, there were 108 turbines, each at 2MW for a total of 216 MW.
