Wind farm company fined  

Companies House has fined Infinergy – the firm behind plans to build a windfarm north of Grantham – for failing to file their company accounts on time.

The firm, which wants to build 10 turbines near Long Bennington, has been fined £100 for missing the October deadline for filing their accounts for 2006.

If the accounts had not been submitted by yesterday, Infinergy, which is a joint venture between British firm Savills and Dutch company Koop, will be fined another £150..

Firms are legally obliged to submit their accounts to Companies House and have 10 months after the end of their finanical year to do so.

A spokeswoman for Companies House said: “Despite reminder letters Infinergy have not so far provided us with accounts. They would have been aware that there would be penalties.”

Allington farmer Richard Withington, who made the discovery after researching Infinergy on the Companies House website, said: “Infinergy cannot comply with company law. How can they be trusted to adhere to planning conditions?

“Do they have a cavalier attitude to company law as well as Health & Safety? Or is there something they are not telling us?”

Campaign group BLOT said: “We were aware of this and are not surprised. We have concerns that a company being managed like that is going to be involved in such an enormous project as Thackson’s Well.”

Infinergy’s managing director said the failure to file accounts was the result of a adminstrative error.

Esbjorn Wilmar said: “Both shareholders have to sign the accounts. They were filed, but only with signatures from Savills. The Dutch signatures were missing.

“Our Dutch director got a letter saying they had two weeks to provide a signature. It was a stupid administrative error but we now have the Dutch signature and the accounts are being re-filed.

“I am not very happy about it and we were too late full stop.”
