First came the bang – then this view. A giant wind turbines had fallen across the road.
It was when Erik Karlsson from Solbergavägen in Vetlanda was out working in the woods on Christmas Eve morning, he was treated to a nasty surprise.
– I was sitting in my forest when suddenly I heard an incredible bang. Just then I thought no more of it, but continued to work, says Erik.
The hour later, around lunchtime, he was finished and went home. Once he understood what caused the blast.
Low straight across the road
– There was a wind straight across the forest road. It had been ten to fifteen meters up from the base and then dropped in the entire length of a weapon.
The rotor blades and the generator operates according to Erik have damaged some trees, but because the wind turbine must have fallen over an open area seems not so much in the surrounding area have been damaged.
Erik Karlsson says that the wind power plant is an example of several wind farms in the area. The sharpest decline is near Lemnhult outside society Korsberga.
