Renewable energy developer Treblade, owned by Infravia Capital Partners, told Windpower Monthly that no one was injured in the incident.
The crane crash in Jamtland County delayed installation of the remaining GE turbines on the project by around three weeks and postponed the final completion date to June.
The manufacturer is delivering 33 GE Cypress 5.3-158 turbines to the site.
A Treblade spokesman said the crane is currently being dismantled.
It is estimated that the destroyed mobile crane with lattice boom has a lifting capacity of 650 tons with a radius of 12 meters and a maximum load moment of 9,152 tons.
A GE spokesman confirmed it is working closely with Treblade to continue installing turbines on site “as quickly and safely as possible”.
