Partners Group announced it has agreed to sell a 20% stake in the  Borssele 3&4 offshore wind farm off the Dutch coast to Swiss Life Asset Managers. 

The wind farm, which comprises 77 wind turbines on monopile foundations with an installed capacity of 731.5MW, is expected to produce enough power to provide approximately 825,000 households in the Netherlands with renewable electricity and make up 2.3% of the country’s total electricity demand. It is located 55 kilometers from the Port of Vlissingen in the Netherlands its other shareholders are Shell (20%), Eneco (10%), INPEX (15%), and Luxcara (10%). 

David Daum, Managing Director, Private Infrastructure Europe, Partners Group, said: "Through our thematic investing approach, we identified offshore wind at the right time as a key contributor towards achieving global net-zero goals in a high growth market. We invested in Borssele before construction had started, contributed to the set-up of an independent organisation to handle daily operations, and guided the project through difficult conditions during the COVID pandemic to full operational status. Borssele now generates the equivalent of 2.3% of Dutch electricity demand."

Completion of the transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals. Partners Group was advised by Rothschild & Co as its financial advisor and Clifford Chance LLP as its legal advisor.
