RTR Capital, a subsidiary of Terra Firma, has acquired Apollo from Acea Reti e Servizi Energetici SpA (Acea RSE) after winning a competitive bidding process which attracted 30 PV operators. 

Apollo manages a portfolio of PV plants which has a combined capacity of 32.5MW. The plants are located in Puglia, Lazio and Campania in Italy.

As part of the agreement, RTR Capital paid a total price of €102.5 million (US$133.4 million) for the company, which is equal to paying around €3 million per megawatt.

Acea said the sale was in line with Acea Group’s strategy to “extracting value from non-core assets in order to consolidate its leadership in regulated markets”, whilst maintaining a balanced and efficient financial structure.

Following this latest acquisition, RTR Capital now operates 297.5MWp of installed PV capacity in Italy and produces more than 400 GWh of electricity every year.

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
