Glennmont Partners from Nuveen (“Glennmont”), one of Europe’s largest clean energy investment fund managers, have agreed to purchase a 30MW onshore wind portfolio in Finland from independent power producer clearvise AG (“clearvise”).

The agreement will see Glennmont acquire two onshore wind farms in the Northern Ostrobothnia region of Finland, totalling nine turbines between them. The technology employed in the project is Vestas V126 turbines, each of which will generate 3.3MW of power.

The project builds on Glennmont’s expertise in the Finnish market following their development of the 211MW Piiparinmäki wind farm, one of the largest constructed unsubsidised wind farms in Europe1 and a key wind power asset in the Nord Pool region which reached commercial operations in the Summer of 2022.

Joost Bergsma, CEO at Glennmont Partners from Nuveen said:

“This agreement with clearvise marks another positive investment in Finland and the Nordics, after successful recent activity in the onshore wind and battery storage sector.

“It has been excellent working with the team at clearvise on this deal, and we now look forward to realising further investment opportunities in this region and across Europe – accelerating the rollout of low-cost clean energy and helping our investors to further decarbonise their portfolios.”

Petra Leue-Bahns, CEO at clearvise AG said:

“We are pleased to have completed this transaction with Glennmont, which secures the future of this 30MW portfolio. For clearvise as a small independent power producer it is important to focus our resources and follow a clear strategy. It has been fantastic to enhance the deployment of onshore wind in Finland with this project and we now look forward to continuing supporting the development of renewables technology across Europe.”

The agreement marks a further expansion of Glennmont’s operations in Finland and the wider Nordics region. Since the opening of the 211MW Piiparinmäki onshore wind farm in late 2022, Glennmont have announced the development of a 30MW battery storage project in the region with Ilmatar and Alfen. Glennmont also entered the Swedish market last year with a 47MW onshore wind portfolio as part of their European Core Renewable Infrastructure strategy.

All investments carry a certain degree of risk, including the possible loss of principal, and there is no assurance that an investment will provide positive performance over any period of time. Certain products and services may not be available to all entities or persons. There is no guarantee that investment objectives will be achieved.

Investors should be aware that alternative investments are speculative, subject to substantial risks including the risks associated with limited liquidity, the potential use of leverage, potential short sales and concentrated investments and may involve complex tax structures and investment strategies. Alternative investments may be illiquid, there may be no liquid secondary market or ready purchasers for such securities, they may not be required to provide periodic pricing or valuation information to investors, there may be delays in distributing tax information to investors, they are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as other types of pooled investment vehicles, and they may be subject to high fees and expenses, which will reduce profits.
