Oh the irony! A wind turbine that fails because of too much wind.

Yeah, LOL also these are kind of old and poorly designed turbines. They're only meant to take the wind from One Direction, if the wind comes from another Direction it can actually cause a lot of stress on these things. I have seen better wind turbines they have a lot less of these issues. Honestly at this point, they should just start dismantling the old ones and replace them with the new ones as they break down.

Nothing made with human hands is foolproof.

I agree. Also this video looks at all of the failures as something wrong with the tech, when it could be multiple things, the tech is old and sometimes they don't het the proper and timingly enough maintenance, it could be that the concrete base was wearing thin yo the constant vibrations of the turbine, it could have got damaged during some seismic activity. But your right, nothingvee make will last forevor. I honestly belive they need to replace this design with a better more advanced turbine, as there are much better built ones that exist out there that take some of these defects into consideration and improved on significantly. One we humans do is constantly improve on our designs, because there are always better more effective designs.
