RIVE Private Investment is pleased to announce the successful mezzanine financing, through the investment fund FCT Quartz, of the windfarm “La Perrière”. Located in Normandy (France) the plant will encompass 8 turbines for a total capacity of 19.2 MW.
The developer of the project, WindKraft Nord (one of the leading developers of turn-key energy projects in Europe and in the United States), will also ensure the operation of the 8 Nordex 117 turbines. Their maintenance will be performed by Nordex itself within the framework of a master agreement.
In addition to the mezzanine financing structured by RIVE Private Investment, the construction of the windfarm (currently underway with a commissioning scheduled for Q1 2019) will notably be financed through a senior loan provided by ING Bank.
