London, 4 June 2019 – DIF, through its most recent fund DIF Infrastructure V, is pleased to announce that it has closed the acquisition of a stake in the Dublin Waste to Energy PPP project (the “Project”). The Project is an operational waste to energy facility supported by a 45 year contract with Dublin City Council. DIF Infrastructure V acquired the stake from Macquarie’s Green Investment Group Limited (“GIG”), who remain a shareholder in the Project.
Bure has entered into agreements with the intention of acquiring 24.4% of the shares in ScandiNova Systems AB (“ScandiNova”) by way of rights issue and acquisition of shares from Industrifonden and SEB Venture Capital. Bure will also offer to acquire shares from other existing shareholders which could increase Bure’s ownership. The transaction is conditional upon approval of the rights issue at ScandiNova’s EGM.
ScandiNova is a world leader in the development and production of Pulsed Power Systems with high power levels (also known as modulators). The company’s products are among others used for linear accelerators in radiotherapy (cancer treatment), science applications and in industrial applications such as cargo scanning. ScandiNovas headquarter and production is in Uppsala and the company has circa 70 employees. The company exports to over 40 countries mainly in Europe, North America and Asia.
”We have followed ScandiNova for a long time and see opportunity in being part of taking the company to the next level. ScandiNova has developed a world leading technology for pulsed modulators which they have successfully commercialized for medical and industrial applications. ScandiNova has a unique position towards customers in radiotherapy for cancer treatment which is a very exciting market” says Henrik Blomquist, CEO of Bure.
“We welcome Bure as an owner in ScandiNova and are looking forward to a long-term cooperation in our continued growth journey. Bure has shown that they are good owners of technologically intensive companies and their experience will contribute to a good development of the company” says Fredrik Mella, CEO of ScandiNova.
