Vestas sells two wind power plants in Romania and Bulgaria
Monday, Jun 24, 2013
Vestas has entered into an agreement to sell the Romanian project Gebeleisis and the Bulgarian project Hrabrovo to LUKERG Renew for a total enterprise value of EUR 127m. The wind power plants have been co-developed by Vestas, among other things to increase Vestas’ share of green electricity. Closing of the transactions is expected to take place within the next eight weeks – however, the Hrabrovo transaction is subject to approval by the Bulgarian competition authority.
The projects are expected to be recognised as revenue and earnings in the second and third quarters of 2013. The free cash flow is expected to be positively impacted by EUR 127m in the second and third quarters of 2013.
Vestas has decided to sell the two projects as development and ownership of projects is not part of Vestas’ regular business model.
