ILOS Projects is sponsored by global infrastructure financier Omnes Capital. Michael Pollan, partner at Omnes, said: “ILOS has seen tremendous growth over the last two years. We are proud to continue supporting the company as it works toward this ambitious IPP project.”

ILOS said that it plans to expand its scope to become a pan-European IPP, initially focusing on projects in Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, Greece and Italy but with a view to expanding to other jurisdictions and into battery storage and hydrogen projects.

Loan proceeds in this agreement have been made available for construction equity and acquisition capital for ready-to-build assets.

Rob Johnson, managing director and global head of direct lending at EIG, said: “We’re thrilled to support ILOS in these exciting growth initiatives as they work to expand their footprint across Europe. This transaction is a testament to our confidence in the management team, their strategy and ILOS’s sponsors, and it underscores EIG’s commitment to investing in high-quality assets and energy infrastructure that support a low-carbon future.”
