Worker sustains burns and falls from height at Highland wind farm

An investigation has been launched after a maintenance worker was rushed to hospital with burn injuries and having “fallen from height” at a Highland wind farm.

The man in his 30s remains in “serious but stable condition” after being airlifted to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness last Tuesday (23rd), after the incident at the Tom nan Clach wind farm, around 10 miles east of the city.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is investigating, while operator Greencoat Wind UK said it was conducting “a full review” into the incident involving a third party contractor.

A coastguard spokesperson said they assisted “a male suffering from burns who had fallen from height”, while the Scottish Ambulance Service said a trauma team had been dispatched to deal with serious injuries.
