Encavis Asset Management AG further expands its wind portfolio in France

  • Acquisition of 74.5 megawatts (MW) of total installed capacity for special fund
  • Green power for 37,000 households

Neubiberg, September 27, 2021 - Encavis Asset Management AG continues to consistently implement the growth and diversification strategy for its special fund Encavis Infrastructure Fund II (EIF II) with the acquisition of five new wind farms in France.

The seller of the renewable energy plants is the Swiss Axpo Holding AG, whose subsidiary Volkswind is responsible for planning, projecting and construction of the wind farms.

The windfarms have 29 state-of-the-art turbines with a total installed capacity of 74.5 MW. All of them were completed and commissioned between January and June 2021. The average annual production of the turbines - located in five French municipalities - corresponds to the electricity consumption of 37,000 households.

The windfarms are part of the special fund EIF II, whose equity capital totals around EUR 480 million and is invested in European wind and solar plants. The special fund, which is offered exclusively by BayernLB and designed in particular for banks and savings banks, is managed by the service KVG HANSAINVEST LUX S.A.

"The demand from investors for funds in the renewable energy sector remains very high. By acquiring these windfarms, we successfully continue our growth path and the internationalisation of the fund's portfolio," Karsten Mieth, Speaker of the Management Board of Encavis Asset Management AG, underlining the further diversification.
