Foul Play All Round

The Western Morning News (September 07, 2014) reports that a 115ft (34 metre) E3120 turbine at East Ash Farm, Bradworthy, in Devon tumbled to the ground in January 2013. Rumours of foul play turned out to be correct.

It took a formal Freedom of Information request for The Healthy and Safety Executive to reveal their findings. HSE’s specialist Inspector Darren Nash had found that the turbine had fallen because Dulas – the installation company – had used “cosmetic grout” to cement the structure in place and not the “prescribed” substance.

Dulas declined to comment on the findings – they would wouldn’t they.
