OX2 sells wind farm and solar farm in Poland to Ingka Investments for 1.7 billion SEK
OX2 sells the Wysoka wind farm and the Recz solar farm in Poland to Ingka Investments, with a total contract value of 173 MEUR, about 1.7 billion SEK, including technical and commercial management services for Wysoka wind farm. This is the first solar farm OX2 sells.
The Recz solar farm is the first solar farm OX2 has developed and sold and once commissioned it will have an installed capacity of 29 MW. The Wysoka wind farm will have an installed capacity of 63 MW.
The buyer, Ingka Investments, is the investment arm of Ingka Group, the world’s largest IKEA franchise. OX2 has previously sold eight wind farms to Ingka Group.
“Solar power is a key part of OX2’s strategy to diversify our portfolio. Solar power will also play a central role in the energy mix of the countries we are active in and OX2 wants a leading role in accelerating this development. I am extra happy that Ingka Group is the buyer of our first solar project as we continue to build on the strong relationship established over the 12 years we have worked together,“ says Paul Stormoen, CEO, OX2 AB.
“We are delighted to further grow our renewable energy portfolio in Poland. This investment represents another important step for Ingka Investments as it will mean a further reduction of the climate footprint of IKEA Retail including distribution and logistics, and also IKEA value chain partners based around the country," says Krister Mattsson, Managing Director, Ingka Investments.
