    Greencoat UK Wind buys stake in Hornsea 1 wind farm off UK east coast

    May 16, 2022 - By Tom Budszus;


      (Alliance News) - Greencoat UK Wind PLC on Monday announced it is investing in the Hornsea 1 offshore farm off the east cost of England.

      It is buying a net stake of 13% in Hornsea 1 from Global Infrastructure Partners, Greencoat UK Wind said. The acquisition worth GBP400 million is expected to complete in the third quarter of 2022.

      Hornsea 1 is the world's largest offshore wind farm, the London-based renewable energy infrastructure investor explained. "Orsted will continue to provide operation, maintenance and management services to the wind farm," Greencoat added.

      The wind farm is currently 50% owned by Orsted AS and 50% owned by GIP, Greencoat said. GIP's stake is part-funded by GBP2.9 billion of limited recourse debt, Greencoat explained. Greencoat's pro rata share of this debt is GBP700 million, giving its 13% stake a total enterprise value of GBP1.1 billion.

      The wind farm 80 miles off the Yorkshire coast has a grid export capacity of 1,200 megawatts and is in full operation since December 2019. It benefits from a price of GBP175.25 per megawatt hour, Greencoat UK Wind said.

      Greencoat UK Wind shares were 0.2% lower at 154.75 pence each in London on Monday morning.
