wind turbine fire kent hills wind farmOn Saturday morning, one of the 32 wind turbines that makes up the Kent Hills Wind Farm in South Eastern New Brunswick. This wind farm is about 30 minutes from my house! I unfortunately didn't get to see it as we were spending the weekend at my parents house, but you could see the smoke from high vantage points in Moncton.

The turbines are Vestas V90 3MW units on 80 meter towers with 45 meter blades with an estimated cost of just over 4 million dollars... ouch!

It must have been something to see.  Investigators are still looking into the root cause and Vestas will have a team onsite today (Monday).
