DGAP-News: Encavis Asset Management AG / Key word(s): Acquisition/Funds
Neubiberg, December 9, 2020 - Encavis Asset Management AG (Encavis AM), a 100% subsidiary of SDAX-listed ENCAVIS AG (Prime Standard, ISIN: DE0006095003), based in Neubiberg near Munich, has completed the acquisition of a Finish wind farm portfolio on behalf of two of its Luxembourg special funds. Both funds are administered by Service-KVG HANSAINVEST LUX S.A.
The wind farm portfolio with a nominal capacity of 36.2 MW is spread across the regions of Lapland, Osterbotten and Nordosterbotten. With wind speeds up to 7.8 m/s, the four locations have first-class framework conditions for high profitability of the plants. In addition, due to its stable country rating and very transparent structures, Finland is an interesting market for investments in the onshore wind space. The entire plant is connected to the grid since three to five years and benefits from feed-in tariffs.
"The acquisition of this attractive Finish wind portfolio for our institutional funds underlines our excellence as investment advisor within the European market for renewable energies. The acquired plant ideally meets the needs of our fund investors for stable cash flows and meteorological diversification in the portfolios," comments Karsten Mieth, Speaker of the Board of Encavis Asset Management AG, on the successful acquisition.
Together with this transaction, the total output of the portfolio managed by Encavis Asset Management AG increases to over 800 MW.
