DIF Infrastructure III is pleased to announce that it has signed and closed the sale of a 100% stake in the Islip and Springhill solar plants to Greencoat Solar Assets II Limited.
Islip and Springhill are two 5MW solar plants located in UK. Both plants have been operational since 2011 and were acquired by DIF in 2013. The projects were refinanced in June 2017.
Andrew Freeman, Head of Exits, said: “This is an attractive exit for DIF III and continues DIF’s successful strategy of proactively targeting to sell assets from its more mature funds taking advantage of strong demand for high quality core infrastructure projects.”
DIF were advised by Elgar Middleton (Finance) and Pinsent Masons (Legal).
Greencoat was advised by PWC (Tax), Eversheds Sutherland (Legal) and Evergy (Technical).
