Burges Salmon advises BayWa r.e. UK on wind farm acquisition
A team from Burges Salmon has advised BayWa r.e. UK, a global renewable energy developer, on its acquisition of High Constellation Wind Farm from Blue Energy.
The proposed wind farm is located on the Kintyre peninsula and, once installed, its 10 turbines will have a capacity of 50MW. Blue Energy, a UK developer of renewable energy infrastructure, will work closely with BayWa r.e. during the development of the project with a view to collaborating on other large-scale, Scottish wind farms in the future.
From Burges Salmon’s Edinburgh office, corporate finance partner Danny Lee, supported by solicitor Niall Mackle, led the cross-sector team advising BayWa r.e. on the acquisition, with support from the firm’s real estate, planning, and energy, power and utilities teams.
Mr Lee said: “We’re delighted to have worked with Christine McGregor and her team once again to support BayWa r.e.’s commitment to helping to drive forward the growth of renewables in the UK and contributing to the government’s commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
“The acquisition of High Constellation Wind Farm sees the business managing over 2,400MW of wind and solar capacity, and continuing its successful role in project development in Scotland.”
