The investment and advisory firm Kobus Partners, specialised in renewable energy and energy infrastructure, has bought a PV portfolio with a total capacity of 12.5 MW. The eight plants are located in the regions of Catalonia, Castile and Leon the Valencian Community, and Andalusia.

Kobus Partners sees itself as an active investor in renewable generation assets, focused in stable energy markets. The parks just acquired will produce more than 23 GWh every year. This way they are mitigating the emission of about 9,200 t of CO2.

“The strong fundamentals, asset quality and stability of the applicable regulatory framework, have been the key elements when executing this transaction” explained Pablo Guinot, partner of Kobus Partners. “Our knowledge and experience in the industry, and our commitment to this market, will allow us to position ourselves as the benchmark in the industry, significantly increasing our portfolio in the following months”, he added.

CMS Albiñana & Suarez de Lezo acted as the buyer’s legal adviser in the acquisitions, which were funded with a mix of equity and bank debt.
