Frankfurt am Main, 15.11.2016
The consulting firm Capcora, specialized on real assets, has again successfully supported a sales process of an onshore wind farm in Germany. Capcora had been mandated by the seller of the project, Schoeller Wind GmbH from Reutlingen as a transaction manager to place the wind farm with institutional investors.
The project “Windhohe 1” consists of nine wind turbines of the type Vestas V112 and has a total capacity of 29.7 MW. The windmills have a rated power of 3.3 MW and a hub height of 140 m. All of the nine wind turbines have been put into operation before 30th of September 2016. The wind farm has an energy yield of approx. 70 GWh per year which can be used to supply about 17,000 households.
The buyer of the wind farm was selected through a bidding process coordinated by Capcora. As buyer, an international infrastructure fund was chosen who has significantly expanded its Germany portfolio with this “landmark” transaction.
“We have entrusted Capcora with the identification and benchmarking of suitable investors and we can say that we are extremely satisfied with the result. We highly appreciate the cooperation, commitment and reliability of Capcora” says Willi Schoeller owner and managing director of Schoeller Wind GmbH.
The transaction management of Capcora includes market price analysis in the forefront of the sales process, the preparation of the transaction documents and finally the identification of suitable investors in the framework of a bidding process with a subsequent benchmarking of the offers and the supervision of all parties in the due diligence process until signing and closing.
