Chatham-Kent wind farm with toppled tower going back online

TerraForm Power said 22 of its 52 turbines are back online


The wind farm where a 160-tonne turbine collapsed in Chatham-Kent is back online.

22 turbines were taken out of service when a tower at the Raleigh Wind Power facility in Dillion, near South Buxton, collapsed early in the morning on January 19.

The incident did not cause any injuries and did not destroy any buildings.

A spokesperson from TerraForm Power says a full review by independent third party professionals as well as the company's own engineering team was done before the switch was flipped.

Chad Reed tells CTV News the company hopes to complete a full site inspection in the coming weeks.

The cause of the toppled turbine has not yet been disclosed.

The turbines at the Raleigh facility went online in January 2011.
