April 1 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine maker Enercon GmbH has sold its entire interest in a company that owns the 117-MW Peralta I and II wind farm in Uruguay.

The announcement of the sale was made on Wednesday by FICUS Advisory, which acted as exclusive advisor to Enercon in this transaction.

Enercon sold its 100% interest in Agua Leguas SA to infrastructure fund manager DIF Capital Partners, through DIF Infrastructure Fund VI, for an undisclosed amount.

This represents the second transaction between Enercon and DIF Capital Partners in Uruguay. In December 2019, Enercon and Eab New Energy sold the 50-MW Cerro Grande wind farm to the fund manager.

The Peralta I and II wind farm is equipped with 50 units of the Enercon E-92 2.35-MW turbines, which have been operating since October 2015. The wind farm’s production output is sold under a 20-year power purchase agreement with state-owned utility Administracion Nacional de Usinas y Trasmisiones Electricas (UTE).

Enercon will continue to maintain the Peralta turbines under a long-term ENERCON PartnerKonzept (EPK) contract, while SEG Heliotec remains the asset management services provider.

Voltiq provided advisory services to DIF Capital Partners, FICUS added.
