Düssel­dorf — Sach­se­n­En­er­gie AG acqui­res a solar park in Poland. The sellers are Gold­beck Solar GmbH and the SUNCATCHER Group. Both deve­lop and build solar and energy systems. — ARQIS advi­sed Sach­se­n­En­er­gie AG on the purchase of a solar park in Poland.

The solar park is a 9 MWp solar complex — a clus­ter of two ground-moun­­ted solar parks in the western Polish town of Barli­nek. Equip­ped with over 16,500 solar modu­les, the plants in Barli­nek are expec­ted to produce 8,982 GWh of elec­tri­city per year. This corre­sponds to supp­ly­ing around 4,000 house­holds. The plant was comple­ted and put into opera­tion at the site at the begin­ning of 2024. The park is to be expan­ded to a capa­city of 11.1 MW by the end of 2024.

As a full-service provi­der for public services, the Sach­se­n­En­er­gie Group relia­bly supplies custo­mers throug­hout Saxony with energy, water, tele­com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons, energy-rela­­ted services and modern infra­struc­ture. It is the largest muni­ci­pal supplier in eastern Germany. The company aims to expand its rene­wa­ble energy busi­ness through PV and wind projects deve­lo­ped in-house and through further acqui­si­ti­ons in Germany and Europe. With the solar park in Barli­nek, Sach­se­n­En­er­gie AG is acqui­ring its first ground-moun­­ted PV system in Poland, ther­eby expan­ding its geogra­phi­cal presence.

The mandate is signi­fi­cant for the firm as it impres­si­vely under­lines its special focus on M&A in regu­la­ted indus­tries, in parti­cu­lar rene­wa­bles.
