Burges Salmon, one of the leading law firms in the UK, has advised long-standing client Infinergy Limited on the sale of two operational wind farm projects.

A team of corporate lawyers, comprising partner Camilla Usher-Clark, senior associate Jonathan Eves and solicitor Gillian Saunderson with assistance from the firm’s Real Estate and Tax departments, acted for Infinergy in the transaction.

The transaction was effected through the sale of Wind Assets LLP, the limited liability partnership holding the Castel Pill and Ferndale wind farms, to John Laing.

The Wind Assets projects have a combined installed capacity of 9.6MW. Castle Pill Wind Farm is a 3.2MW operational development near Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire. The project comprises three 900kW EWT Direct Wind machines and a 500kW Nordtank. Infinergy constructed the project in 2009, introducing the first EWT turbines in the UK. Ferndale Wind Farm was constructed by Infinergy in 2011. The 6.4MW wind farm is situated in the Rhondda Valleys and comprises eight Enercon E48 800kW machines. Both projects are operated by Infinergy.

John Laing and Infinergy entered into partnership in 2012 when John Laing acquired 80% in Infinergy's 8.2MW Wear Point Wind Farm in Waterston, Pembrokeshire – a transaction on which Burges Salmon also acted.

Camilla Usher-Clark said: “We were pleased to be able to put a multi-disciplinary team in place for Infinergy and assist the team in completing another in a series of renewable energy transactions. This deal in particular has further helped Infinergy grow its relationship and partnership with John Laing.”

Infinergy is a wholly owned subsidiary of KDE Energy B.V. of the Netherlands, which is a renewable energy business that develops onshore wind projects across Europe.
