A blade has been blown off a Vestas turbine at Bindesbol, western Denmark during storm Urd, local publication Dagbladet Ringkobing-Skjern reported last week.

Anders Riis, communications officer at Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS), was cited as saying that the blade has been transported to Skjern, where it will be examined by the company's engineers. Thorough investigations will be carried out to determine the reason for the incident.

According to Riis, it is not clear yet whether the turbine had come to a stop, as is normal at times of violent winds, or was still spinning when the blade fell off.
