SUSI will contribute its investment expertise with the aim of ensuring “effective value creation and the highest standards in responsible project delivery”.
As detailed in the press release, this is SAETF’s fourth transaction and its first investment in large-scale renewable energy production facilities. The fund, which was founded in 2017, has received capital commitments from development banks, development funds and private investors. mm
