ARUP Advises on A Record Breaking $5bn Renewable Energy Deal

Published on 2018-10-10

Arup worked on behalf of Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) on their successful bid to acquire Equis’ portfolio of 11GW of renewable assets, for a record breaking $5bn.

Working with restricted timescales, Arup's business investor advisory team led the commission from London with significant support from across our global offices to ensure a successful deal was compiled.

Equis’ 11GW portfolio included 139 solar and wind power generation assets in operation, construction and development. The renewable energy assets were spread across seven countries in the Asia Pacific region, with 1GW of operating assets and 1GW under construction. The portfolio across Japan, Philippines, India, Indonesia, Australia, Taiwan and Thailand also included a substantial development pipeline.

Arup's primary role was to provide independent technical due diligence advice to GIP throughout the transaction to support their asset evaluation process. Arup’s experienced transaction advice team focused on key deal value drivers including energy yield modelling, capex and opex assumptions and consideration of multijurisdictional development pipeline of projects.
