Enegia to strengthen its partnerships and sharpen its energy management operations

On 30th of October Enegia has concluded a transaction with Caverion Finland on the transfer of its remote property management operations to Caverion Finland. Concurrently, the companies have reached a partnership agreement on the sales and delivery of energy data management and energy efficiency services.

The global energy industry is experiencing unprecedented changes as a result of digitalisation and shifts in the consumption and production of energy.

On the other hand, the remote management services have better potential to develop in Caverion’s management, as part of a larger portfolio and strengthened by the resources Caverion is able to invest in the services,” states Kalle Ahlstedt, CEO of Enegia, of the new agreement.

Together, Enegia and Caverion provide property owners with the most comprehensive selection of energy efficiency services available. Enegia is a leading European provider of energy market and energy reporting services, and its EnerKey software is the most widely used tool in the Nordic countries for the management of energy efficiency services. Caverion is a leading European provider of energy management services and PPP/ESCO/EPC projects.

Ardian and EDF Invest acquire further stake in Geosel from LyondellBasell


Paris, September 27th 2017 – Transport Stockage Hydrocarbures (TSH), the joint subsidiary of Ardian and EDF Invest, today announces that it has completed the acquisition of a 26.7% stake in oil storage company Géosel from Basell Polyolefines, the multinational manufacturers of polyolefin (LyondellBasell group).

TSH already owned a majority stake in Géosel following the acquisition of a 50.01% stake in the company from Total in 2015. With this latest transaction, TSH now owns 76.7% of Geosel, alongside Petroineos Manufacturing France (19.9%) and Total (3.4%). The exiting shareholder, Basell Polyolefines France, will continue to use Géosel’s infrastructure for its own needs.

With a capacity of almost 9 million cubic meters, Géosel owns a critical site for the management of French national oil reserves. The company is based in Manosque, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence (France) and operates underground storage caverns and related pipelines linked to the seaport of Fos, Marseille (France), and the petrochemical facilities of Etang de Berre (Fos, Lavera, France).

TSH, alongside its co-shareholders, aims at preserving the company’s operational excellence and will pursue its long-term development as one of the most important and best performing sites in the sector in Europe.

Commenting on the closing of the deal, Guillaume d’Engremont, Managing Director of EDF Invest and Mathias Burghardt, Head of Ardian Infrastructure, said: “We are very pleased, through TSH, to further strengthen our investment in Géosel and to reinforce our long-term commitment to the sector.”


Starting with the acquisition of a 50% stake in Géosel Manosque SAS (“Géosel”) from Total in December 2015, TSH has been established as an investment platform in the storage and transportation of liquid hydrocarbons in Europe and potentially outside of Europe, benefiting from the strong support of both Ardian and EDF Invest in the long term. Its board of directors is comprised of investment team members of Ardian and EDF Invest that have been involved in the execution and asset management of oil midstream storage assets in multiple countries across Europe, as well as industry veterans and experts with up to 30 years of experience in the transportation and storage of hydrocarbons sector.


Ardian, founded in 1996 and led by Dominique Senequier, is an independent private investment company with assets of US$65bn managed or advised in Europe, North America and Asia. The company, which is majority- owned by its employees, keeps entrepreneurship at its heart and delivers investment performance to its global investors while fuelling growth in economies across the world. Ardian’s investment process embodies three values: excellence, loyalty and entrepreneurship.

Ardian maintains a truly global network, with more than 470 employees working through twelve offices in Paris, London, Frankfurt, Milan, Madrid, Zurich, New York, San Francisco, Beijing, Singapore, Jersey, Luxembourg. The company offers its 610 investors a diversified choice of funds covering the full range of asset classes, including Ardian Funds of Funds (primary, early secondary and secondary), Ardian Private Debt, Ardian Buyout (including Ardian Mid Cap Buyout Europe & North America, Ardian Expansion, Ardian Growth and Ardian Co-Investment), Ardian Infrastructure, Ardian Real Estate and Ardian Mandates.


EDF Invest is the unlisted investment arm of EDF’s Dedicated Assets, the asset portfolio which covers its long-term nuclear decommissioning commitments in France. EDF Invest manages a portfolio of over €5bn equity investments through three asset classes: infrastructure, real estate and private equity.

In addition to TSH, the existing infrastructure portfolio includes stakes in RTE (the French electricity transmission company), Thyssengas (the third largest gas TSO in Germany), Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur (the second largest French airport operator, owned in partnership with Atlantia), TIGF (a gas transport and storage company operating in the South-West of France), Madrileña Red de Gas (the operator of the main gas distribution network in the region of Madrid), Porterbrook (one of the three main rolling stock owning companies in the UK) and Autostrade per I’Italia (the largest toll motorway concession asset in Europe).


Géosel owns the Manosque underground storage facility in southeastern France and pipelines linking the facility to the oil ports in Fos and Lavéra, also in the same region.

With a capacity of close to 9 million cubic meters, Géosel’s underground liquid hydrocarbon storage facility is one of the largest of its kind in Europe. It represents about 20% of France’s total hydrocarbon storage capacity and is primarily used to store around 40% of the country’s strategic reserves.

Aquila Capital acquires Danish wind farm

Aquila Capital

Aquila Capital has acquired a wind energy project in Denmark near Kappel on Lolland with an installed capacity of over 25 MW. With the acquisition, Aquila Capital’s transaction volume in the wind sector has now surpassed 1,000 MW.

The project consists of seven wind turbines, all of which are 3.6 MW, by Danish manufacturer Vestas. Six of these are V117 turbines and one is a V126 turbine. The project has entered into a long-term full maintenance contract with Vestas. Due to the project being already operational and takeover having occurred subsequent to final technical examination and certification Aquila Capital is not exposed to any construction risk. Seller of the windpark is European Energy AS.

Denmark offers excellent conditions for wind energy investments, as evidenced by average wind speeds of 8.5 m/s at turbine hub height of this project. Operators of wind energy projects in Denmark receive a feed-in premium for a defined number of full-load hours in addition to the market price realised at the Nordpool electricity exchange. In the case of onshore wind turbines, the premium amounts are up to DKK 250/MWh (approximately EUR 34/MWh). In addition, wind farm operators receive compensation for grid stabilisation charges during the first 20 years of operation after grid connection.

Susanne Wermter, Head of Energy & Infrastructure EMEA at Aquila Capital, said: “Due to the conditions of the region, Northern Europe is very attractive for wind energy investments. For the project on Lolland, we were also able to secure one of the last projects to receive a high feed-in premium.”

Roman Rosslenbroich, CEO and Co-Founder of Aquila Capital, said: “The combination of excellent wind ressources with a very transparent support scheme means Denmark offers an attractive diversification to the wind energy projects we manage. Due to the highly professional sector environment and the well-developed market for commercial power purchase agreements, we believe Denmark will continue to offer an appealing environment for professional investments.”

APG and Vasa Vind to build Sweden’s largest onshore wind power project

APG and Vasa Vind announced today the launch into construction of the 288MW Åskalen onshore wind power project. Located in the central Sweden region of Jämtland, the project will comprise 80 Vestas V136 3.6MW turbines, making it the largest onshore wind power project in Sweden. The total construction investment will amount to approximately EUR 300m, and commissioning will be completed in 2020 delivering a total power production close to 1TWh/year, equivalent to 50.000 Swedish households.

The cost to build Scandinavian wind power generation is among the lowest in Europe. The peninsula has strong and steady winds, and its scarce population density allows construction at a larger scale and with higher towers than in most European countries. Thanks to its industrial scale and excellent wind resource, the Åskalen project will be one of the most efficient wind farms in Europe.

In April 2017 Sweden announced the extension of its green certificate system for renewable power until 2030, adding 18TWh to the target to be reached by this date; Åskalen is one of the first projects to be launched in construction after this extension.

Pension funds ABP and PPF APG, the assets of which are managed by APG, will be the owners of the wind farm. This investment will contribute to ABP’s goal of increasing its investments in renewable energy fivefold (to € 5 bln) by 2020. Vasa Vind, a portfolio company of HgCapital’s Renewable Power Partners 2 fund, will be responsible for the construction and operations project management. Vestas will be responsible for the operations and maintenance of the wind farm through a 20-year contract.

Swedbank, Roschier and Sweco advised APG on the transaction. DNB Markets, White & Case, Advokatfirman Oebergs and DNV-GL advised Vasa Vind and HgCapital. DNB Markets also provided long-term hedging for power and Elcertificates.

We are delighted to partner with APG for the construction of this flagship project. After many years spent developing and optimizing this project to make it as competitive as possible, it is very exciting to now move into construction with such a strong financial partner“, said Annette Eriksson, CEO of Vasa Vind.

Dirk Hovers, Sr. Portfolio Manager Infrastructure at APG said: “Our clients’ aim is to increase strongly their investments in renewable energy while contributing to their risk-adjusted financial returns, therefore APG will take a leading role in initiating new projects. Scandinavian power is a strategic area for our infrastructure investments in renewables. We are looking forward to working with Vasa Vind and Vestas to bring into operations this project and add it to our infrastructure portfolio.

Allister Sykes, of HgCapital’s Renewable Power Team added: “Launching Åskalen into construction is a major milestone for our Swedish wind platform. We see ever more opportunities opening up for Vasa Vind to focus on developing more large scale, efficient projects, and further potential for market consolidation“.


Financial services provider APG Group provides services such as executive consultancy, asset management, pension administration, pension communication and employers services. APG performs these activities on behalf of (pension) funds and employers in the sectors of education, government, construction, cleaning and glass cleaning, housing associations, energy and utility companies, sheltered employment and medical specialists.

APG manages € 452 billion (April 2017) in pension assets for its clients in these sectors. It also offers supplementary income products for individuals as well as the administration of defined contribution schemes for Premium Pension Institutions (PPIs), (company) pension funds, insurance companies and asset managers. APG works for over 40,000 employers, providing the pension for one in five families in the Netherlands (approximately 4.5 million participants).

HgCapital is a long-established sector-focused private equity investor. Since 2006 HgCapital has been a leading European investor in renewable power projects, managing over €845 million on behalf of 30 global institutional clients across two dedicated funds: RPP1 and RPP2. In May 2016 HgCapital announced a plan to gradually transfer its renewable power business to Asper Investment Management, a new real asset investment platform set up and owned by the RPP management team.

Vasa Vind is a Swedish onshore wind developer and operator acquired by RPP2 in 2013. It manages 200MW of operating projects and has a development pipeline of over 700MW. The team are headquartered in Stockholm and have a regional office in Umea, central Sweden.
