He added, “This investment validates R.Power’s track record in renewables and will play a significant role in our strategy to become a leading European renewable energy IPP and contribute actively to the EU energy independence.”

3SIIF has also acquired a minority stake in R.Power. Following the investment, the founding shareholders of R.Power will retain a majority stake and continue to lead the company, while 3SIIF maintains an option to increase its investment further to €250 million (US$267.3 million) in total. Serviced by UK specialist international investment manager Amber Infrastructure, 3SIIF is a commercial fund targeting infrastructure investments in Central and Eastern Europe, investing in energy, transport and digital infrastructure in the region.
