Wind Turbine Safety Notice

As with any structure, wind turbines can accumulate ice under certain conditions.  During the cold weather months, ice can build-up on the wind turbine blades and fall to the ground in sheets.  This falling ice could cause injury to people or damage to anything within 100 metres of the turbine tower bases.  It is often difficult to see the ice that may have formed on the blades or have any warning of when the ice could fall.
