Anesco announced the disposal last week and explained that it is selling its completed projects to focus on its core offering -- the provision of full lifecycle engineering services to solar and storage projects. It has developed over 750 MW of utility-scale solar and storage projects to date.
“This transaction will fuel growth by enabling us to bring new projects into being and to expand our operations and maintenance, asset optimisation and ECO divisions. Overall, creating a truly integrated proposition for renewable energy investors,” said Anesco chief executive Mark Futyan.
For Gridserve this is the first purchase of an operational photovoltaic (PV) park. The company will sleeve a portion of Clayhill’s output for a solar-powered electric vehicle charging project in Braintree. This first Electric Forecourt location is to open later in 2020, while Gridserve’s goal is to reach more than 100 in the coming years.
Anesco will continue to operate and maintain the Clayhill park under a 20-year agreement with the new owner.
