New investment in renewable energy infrastructure

Norges Bank Investment Management has signed an agreement to acquire a 49 percent interest in a 644 MW portfolio of solar plants located in Spain.

25 April 2024

The agreement was signed on 23 April 2024. 

Norges Bank Investment Management [1] will pay 203 million euros for its 49 percent interest in the portfolio, valuing the portfolio at approximately 414 million euros. No external debt financing will be involved in the transaction.

The seller of the 49 percent interest is Iberdrola. Iberdrola will remain co-owner and operator of the portfolio. This is an extension of the portfolio acquired from Iberdrola in January, which comprises two solar plants and two onshore wind farms in Spain and Portugal.

The new portfolio comprises two solar plant projects with a total installed capacity of 644 MW, equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of 400,000 Spanish households. One project is currently operational, while the second is under development and expected to be completed in 2025. Norges Bank Investment Management will take ownership of the asset once it becomes operational.
