Hannes Snellman acted as legal counsel to InfraVia Capital Partners in its acquisition of a 175 MW wind farm, Björkvattnet, through an acquisition of 100% of the shares in Björkvattnet Vind AB.

InfraVia is an independent investment manager specialised in the infrastructure sector. It was founded by Vincent Levita in 2008, and it pursues an investment strategy focused on the European mid-market. The company currently has 32 professionals, EUR 4.0 billion in assets under management through four infrastructure funds, and 30 investments in 11 European countries.

The plan is that the wind farm, which is located approximately 470 kilometres north of Stockholm, will generate enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of 175,000 homes in Sweden and will play a significant role in supporting the country’s target to become fossil fuel free by 2040. The project is expected to reach commercial operations by the end of 2020.

Hannes Snellman’s core team comprised Johanna Wärnberg, Julia Wegelius, Douglas Essehorn, Anna Bergström (M&A), and Rezan Akkurt (Finance).
