The wind farm about 100km north of Adelaide had 3 MW Vestas V90 turbines towers 80-metres above the ground each with a rotor diameter of 90 metres. With an investment on this scale, safety issues, and the environmental impact of fire-damaged or destroyed turbines, the windfarm was investigating options for effective fire detection and suppression.
