August & Debouzy advised La Caisse des Dépôts in connection with its investment in three wind farms developed by La Compagnie du Vent (Engie).
La Caisse des Dépôts invests in equity in three onshore wind farms developed by La Compagnie du Vent. Such long-term investment will allow La Compagnie du Vent to ensure the financing of other development operations and to increase its onshore wind farm potential.
The wind farms, put into operation in 2015 and 2016, represent a global power of 73.6 MW. Such operation will allow La Compagnie du Vent to bring the funds necessary to develop its future wind farms until 2018. The partnership implemented via this first operation will continue its development during next years.
