Guy Hands-Owned Infinis Says Turbine Caught Fire in Storms

Infinis Plc, the renewables company owned by financier Guy Hands, said one of its wind turbines caught fire in “extreme stormy weather conditions” that caused most of Britain’s turbines to stop generating power.

The turbine’s nacelle, the case for its power-generating components, caught fire yesterday at the Ardrossan wind farm in Ayrshire, Scotland, Infinis said in a statement late yesterday. No one was injured and the blaze was out before firefighters arrived, while the cause isn’t yet known, Infinis said.
