Zurich, 20 April 2015 - Aravis Energy I LP, a Swiss renewable energy fund advised by Aravis, successfully completed the sale of two companies comprising two German wind farms to a Swiss power supplier. “We have once again been able to successfully exit investments, which further strengthens our track record of delivering returns to investors. This proves our agility and high-quality skills of implementing attractive investment projects in accordance with the investment strategy.’’, commented Oliver Thalmann, Managing Partner of Aravis. The German wind farms are located in Rhineland-Palatinate respectively Brandenburg. Both wind farms benefit from attractive long-term feed-in tariffs. These tariffs do not correlate with other commodity market prices such as those for oil and gas, thereby offering an efficient diversification effect to investors.
Aravis is one of the most experienced renewable energy investors in Europe and in the process of launching its 3rd investment vehicle in this area. The investment vehicle will be under the supervision of the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) and targets qualified institutional investors. The seasoned management team will continue to execute attractive investment opportunities in the growing renewable energy market in Europe. Since 2009, Aravis has established various wind, hydro and photovoltaic power companies in Germany, France,
Spain, Italy and Norway amounting to a total investment of more than EUR 280 million.
