According to the purchase and sale agreement signed today, Enefit Green sells Brocēni cogeneration plant and pellet factory in Latvia to Warmeston.
"Increasing the share of wind and solar energy in the Baltic States and Poland is the focus of Enefit Green. Currently, we have six wind parks under construction in Finland, Estonia, and Lithuania, as well as four solar power plants in Estonia, Latvia, and Poland with a total capacity of 715 megawatts. The sale of biomass-based cogeneration businesses allows us to focus more on our strategic business direction. The professional team at Broceni is a valuable foundation for Warmeston's growth. We thank the team for their contribution and wish them success in the future," said Innar Kaasik, Member of the Management Board and Production Manager of Enefit Green.
The object of the transaction is the cogeneration business in Brocēni, which includes a cogeneration plant and pellet factory completed in 2016. The business unit has 39 employees, and the electricity produced is sold to the Latvian electricity grid, while the heat is used to dry raw materials in the adjacent pellet factory. The annual pellet production is about 155 thousand tonnes. Pellets are sold to energy companies, wholesale distributors and retail clients. The value of the transaction on a cash- and debt-free basis is 32 million euros.
Following the transaction and asset transfer, the cogeneration plant, pellet factory, and employees will continue their existing activities within the Warmeston group.
