Our in-house team is responsible for structuring renewable energy projects.

In 2013, MPC Capital and the Ferrostaal group joined the “Ventinveste” consortium. Its members then included Galp Energia, Martifer, Efacec and Senvion as 50% equity partners for the development, financing and construction of the 171.6 MW wind farm in Portugal, the Âncora wind farms. Project Âncora, with its four wind farms, is now Portugal’s fourth largest wind farm project and has a significant impact on the economy of the country.

Tilawind is the second acquisition of the MPC Caribbean Clean Energy Fund. In 2018, Tilawind exceeded our forecasted expectations, in terms of energy production and revenues. The wind farm, which is located in Tilarán, in the northern province of Costa Rica, Guanacaste, is operational since 2015 and has the potential for future expansion of its peak capacity.
MPC Capital launched its Caribbean renewable energy strategy in 2017 with a target volume of approx. USD 100 m and seed assets in Jamaica and Costa Rica. Part of the strategy is a successful stock exchange cross-listing in Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago. MPC Capital will expand the strategy with a current pipeline comprising 14 projects accounting for approx. 320 MW.
Initial project for an investment platform for renewable energies in the Caribbean was a 50 MWp solar plant on the Caribbean island of Jamaica. With a gross capacity of 51MWp, it is the largest of its kind in the English speaking Caribbean. The plant will operate under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the Jamaican Public Service Company (JPS) for a period of 20 years.
In September 2017, the Sainshand 55 MW onshore wind farm in Mongolia reached financial closing for USD 120 million. The wind farm, with a feed-in capacity of 55 MW, will provide the equivalent of the electricity consumption of more than 100 thousand households in Mongolia. The Sainshand wind farm contributes to a greener economy with a potential reduction of more than 200 thousand tons of CO2 emissions per year.
