Docklands secrets - November 2013 Image

Docklands has certainly been windy of late (perhaps even more than usual), but ANZ’s wind turbines haven’t been able to advantage of the blustery weather.

The six turbines sit atop the ANZ building on Collins St, turning in the wind and generating energy.

But for the past few months the turbines have been lying flat on the roof of the building, after a severe storm in July saw parts from one of the turbines break free and fall onto the street below.

“We have sent the damaged turbine back to the manufacturer in the UK to conduct a full investigation,” an ANZ spokesman said.

“The safety of our people and the community is our primary concern, so until we understand what happened all the turbines will be locked down.”

The five-metre tall turbines cost $100,000 each when they were installed on the roof of the building in 2009.
