A blade on a wind turbine in the wind farm near Zülpich-Wichterich broke off last night. The pieces of debris are scattered around the facility on the directly adjacent field.


The cause of the fallen turbine blade is still unclear. Mayor Ulf Hürtgen calls for all systems in this area to be checked.

Mayor Ulf Hürtgen (r.) personally took a look at the destroyed wind turbine near Zülpich-Wichterich.

A blade on a wind turbine in the wind farm near Zülpich-Wichterich broke off last night. The pieces of debris are scattered around the facility on the directly adjacent field. Another blade from of the same turbine is currently still partially hanging on the mast. Since it is feared that further parts will fall, the area around the wind turbine has been cordoned off over a large area. Fortunately, nobody was injured in the incident.

Mayor Ulf Hürtgen got an idea of ​​the situation on site in the morning. "The cause of this incident is still unclear at this time. Regardless, I assume that the operator of the wind turbine will also check the safety of the other systems in this area," he said.
