    It is extremely difficult to extinguish a fire in a wind turbine using conventional methods. The 130-meter high turbines are effectively outside the range of the fire department, and when it comes to turbines at sea, human intervention in the event of fire is virtually impossible. That’s why a comprehensive fire safety concept needs to […]
