March 22 (Renewables Now) - Swiss asset manager SUSI Partners AG on Wednesday unveiled plans to buy a 14.4-MW wind farm in Denmark from domestic developer Eurowind Energy.

SUSI Partners said that, through its Renewable Energy Fund II, it will acquire four out of five turbines at the Gronkaer wind park in the municipality of Lemvig, with the capacity to be acquired totalling 14.4 MW. Eurowind Energy will remain the owner of the plant’s fifth turbine.

The wind park, powered by five Vestas V126-3.45 MW turbines in 3.6 MW mode, was commissioned in January 2018 and benefits from a Danish feed-in premium of DKK 250 (USD 37.84/EUR 33.50) per MWh. SUSI estimates that the turbines it will buy will generate electricity to supply 12,000 homes and offset 16,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually.

“We expect this sale to be the first in a long line of business opportunities between SUSI Partners and Eurowind Energy – with respect to the sale of wind parks as well as asset management in and beyond Denmark,” said Jens Rasmussen, CEO of Eurowind Energy.

This will be SUSI Partner’s second wind acquisition in Denmark following the purchase of a 25.2-MW wind park from Copenhagen-based European Energy A/S at end-2018.
