Frankfurt, 1 November 2023 – The international law firm ADVANT Beiten has provided comprehensive legal advice to Verbund AG and its subsidiaries on the acquisition of a 56.4 MW wind portfolio in the German federal states of Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony. The seller is an infrastructure fund managed by Impax Asset Management. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

The portfolio consists of five operational wind farms with a total of 38.4 MW (in Oedelum, Quelkhorn, Mariengarten, Münster and Frielendorf Süd) as well as a wind project with a planned commissioning in the third quarter of next year with 18 MW (Feldatal).
