Nuveen Infrastructure boosts portfolio with 27MW onshore wind deal in Southern Italy

Nuveen Infrastructure, one of the world’s leading clean energy infrastructure managers, has agreed the forward purchase of a 27MW onshore wind farm in Southern Italy from OX2.

The project, which is located in Italy’s Apulia region, has been acquired under the Nuveen European Core Renewable Infrastructure strategy, which launched last year in partnership with MN.

The strategy offers investors exposure to brownfield renewable projects across the Netherlands, UK, France, Spain, Italy, the Nordics, Germany and the other Benelux countries. The deal marks another milestone for the strategy following the acquisition of a 47MW Swedish onshore wind portfolio in early 2023.

Under the terms of the agreement, OX2 will finalise construction of the wind farm, which has a commercial operation date of September 2024. At this point, Glennmont will complete the full purchase of the project.

Joost Bergsma, Founder of Glennmont Partners from Nuveen, said of the deal:

“We are delighted to have signed this agreement with OX2 to expand our portfolio of onshore wind projects in Italy. Acquiring the project via a forward COD purchase enables our investors to benefit from the stable returns while avoiding the risk associated with construction.

“The deal fits particularly with our brownfield infrastructure investment strategy, and will deliver low-cost, clean, domestically-produced power to Southern Italy.”

Paul Stormoen, CEO of  OX2 said:

“We are happy to announce the divestment of our first project in Italy. Italy is a  market with great long-term potential, and we are looking forward to developing more projects in onshore as well as technologies such as solar and energy storage. We are also happy that the buyer is Nuveen Infrastructure that has a very strong track record of clean energy investments.”

Important information on risk

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. 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.

As an asset class, real assets are less developed, more illiquid, and less transparent compared to traditional asset classes. Real asset investments will be subject to risks generally associated with the ownership of real estate-related assets and foreign investing, including changes in economic conditions, currency values, environmental risks, the cost of and ability to obtain insurance, and risks related to leasing of properties. 

Responsible investing incorporates Environmental Social Governance (ESG) factors that may affect exposure to issuers, sectors, industries, limiting the type and number of investment opportunities available, which could result in excluding investments that perform well.
