As part of the transaction, Aquila Capital entered into a power purchase agreement with a third party for the energy produced by the four installations.

Susanne Wermter, head of investment management energy & infrastructure EMEA at Aquila Capital, said: “Even without state funding support, these projects are a highly attractive investment. With the help of a long-term power purchase agreement, we have been able to secure stable attractive income for our investors.”

In total, Aquila Capital manages a renewable energy portfolio with a transaction volume of over €3 billion across 10 countries.
