Wind turbines collapse in Brazil

Two wind turbines have collapsed in less than two months in Brazil.

Tuesday marked the 126th anniversary of public access to the Eiffel Tower, which opened on March 31, 1889. Throughout its construction it was marked with controversy and deemed a disaster by France’s best aesthetic minds. The hope was that the World’s Fair “gimmick” would be demolished as soon as possible. Today, however, the Eiffel Tower is an icon, a Paris landmark and surprisingly eco-friendly – sort of.

A massive wind turbine has mysteriously collapsed on January 2nd, on Murley mountain in Northern Ireland. The wind turbine was one of eight turbines of the Screggagh wind farm and its value is estimated to over £500,000. Have a look at photos from the site, provided below!
