Omnes Capital, through its Capenergie funds, has sold a European portfolio of more than 100 MW of renewable energy assets to EOS Holding. This acquisition will enable EOS Holding to increase its capacity in renewables, particularly at the level of ground-mounted solar power plants.
Omnes Capital, which started operations in 2006, has currently more than €600 million in assets under management and 1.5 GW of power generation capacity.
The portfolio sold by Omnes Capital consists of four wind farms and four solar power plants located in France and Portugal, and was built up between 2010 and 2013.
The four wind farms developed alongside Valorem are located in the Picardy, Burgundy and Poitou-Charentes regions of France and represent a total capacity of around 50 MW.
The four solar power plants, located in Portugal and in the Aquitaine region of France, were developed with Neoen, Fonroche and Valorem, representing a total generation capacity of 60 MW.
The selling is in line with Capenergie funds’ business approach, which consists of developing new renewable energy generation capacity in partnership with independent power producers. Once the project is built and in operation it is usually sold to third-party investors.

Serge Savasta, Managing Director at Omnes Capital, commented:
“For the last 10 years, we have been a strategic partner of independent power producers in Europe by helping them to develop new generation capacity. This transaction is a good illustration of this approach: it is the result of several years of work during which we supported our partners in the development, financing, construction and implementation of these power generation assets. With these projects now in operation, this objective has been achieved and we are happy to be passing the baton to EOS Holding, a very experienced actor which whom it has been a pleasure to work.”
