How frequently do wind turbines fail?

“Risk arises from a wind turbine when it experiences a failure of one of its subsystems, or in the event a full system catastrophic event where the whole tower and rotor system is lost. Component failures can occur due to normal wear of components, abnormal wear due to overload or quality issues, operator error, or due to force majeure events such as lightning, earthquakes, floods, etc. Most components are fail-safe and as such their failure does not result in a dangerous situation or a cascade of multiple failures, but some exceptions are possible.” click here
