Renewable energy company Enfinity Global Inc. announced that it has secured $151.5 million in long term and VAT financing and letter of credit (LC) facilities. These funds will be used to construct 3 solar projects with 112 MW capacity in Italy.
Santander Corporate & Investment Banking (Santander CIB) and BayernLB provided the financing in two tranches for 2 power plants totalling 72 MW and an additional tranche for 40 MW, which included financial holding company Nomura.
They also acted as mandated lead arrangers for each project financing through a club deal structure. The deal included $90.48 million of non-recourse senior debt financing and $60.67 million of VAT financing and LC facilities for power purchase agreements and photovoltaic modules.
Located around the Lazio region, the solar projects are expected to be operational by the first half of 2024. The clean electricity produced is expected to be 191 GWh annually. This will be sufficient power for 71,000 homes and will curb about 76,500 tons of CO2 emissions.
CEO of Enfinity Global Carlos Domenech said, “We are grateful to partner with three leading financial institutions and demonstrate the quality of our portfolio and the depth of the financing sector.
