Andrea Jouven, CEO of Eco Delta added: “We are particularly happy to have been able to work with Everoze’s team as technical advisor for the project financing of Hauts de Lune. Their speed of action, their expertise and their professionalism allowed us to achieve this transaction in time.”
Everoze’s scope of work included full energy yield assessment alongside a technical review of consenting issues, land rights, grid, tariff, technology and design, structural and environmental suitability, construction and operation contracts, construction program and financial model inputs.
Elodie Geffray, transaction manager at Envinergy: “Our role was to advise Eco Delta on the financing structuring with both a bridge loan and a long term project finance. As an efficient financing process also depends on the quality of the advisors, Envinergy very much appreciated the professionalism and the solution-centric approach of Everoze throughout the process.”
While the project closing occurred in April 2020, project commissioning is scheduled for Q1 2021. During this period Everoze will support the lender with construction monitoring work including desktop review, site visits and wind turbine inspections at take-over. Everoze’s work has been led by French partner Arnaud Thomé supported by a broader project team including Maud Vachon, Alexander Klein and Brieuc Pey.
