Renewables-focused Israeli fund Windin Capital has announced the opening of an office in Barcelona to manage operations in Latin America and Europe. Established by Aveeram Wind’s top management as their investment arm in Europe, Windin Capital generates stable returns for our investors through investment in renewable assets across the project lifecycle.
The fund´s Barcelona office, with a development team based on-site, will develop six renewable energy projects with a total capacity of more than 300 megawatts (MW) in Spain, as well as operations and future investments in Europe and Latin America.
Windin Capital’s managing partner, Nadav Saad, said the opening of the Spanish office lays the groundwork for other projects the fund plans to undertake in the future and represents “a big step in our desire to drive change in favour of a greener economy”.
The fund has completed the acquisition of three wind farms in the Biobío and Araucanía regions of Chile, which will have a combined installed capacity of 103.8 MW. The La Flor wind farm (32.4 MW) has been operational since October 2019 and consists of nine 3.6 MW Vestas turbines. The remaining two projects, Vergara (37.8 MW) and Cancura (33.6 MW), are currently under development and are expected to start construction by the end of 2022.
Pérez-Llorca advised Windin and led the operación in Spain with the local support in Chile from Alessandri law firm.
Pérez-Llorca´s M&A team was led by partner Dídac Severino, along with lawyers Alberto Varela-Grandal and Alejandro Santamaría, and trainee Pablo Aguilar Romero.
Alessandri advised with a team comprising M&A partner Felipe Cousiño, M&A and Finance senior associate José Antonio Cuadra, M&A and Finance associate Gabriel Arancibia, Environmental, Water and Mining of counsel Soledad Callejas, Energy of counsel Alejandra Moya, and Real Estate associate Hans Kokott.
