Wind energy Vestas: Incident at the Macarthur Wind Farm in Australia

"Our consortium partner at Macarthur, Leighton Contractors, are managing the site and will conduct an investigation to establish the circumstances and causes of the accident once the immediate priorities have been attended to. " Vestas can confirm that the injured worker was not crushed by a wind turbine or a wind turbine blade.

The 420-megawatt MacArthur farm is Australia’s largest wind energy project, and will cost about $1 billion to build.
