UK's Ventient adds Portugal's Iberwind to growing onshore portfolio

Ventient Energy, one of Europe's largest independent wind energy generators, is adding 726MW to its 1.9GW onshore operating assets with the acquisition of Portugal's Iberwind

Ventient Energy's 43MW A'Crurarch wind farm in Scotland

The sale will add 31 wind farms, with 320 turbines, to the 103 onshore projects in the UK, France, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Portugal and Spain that Ventient currently operates.

Ventient's agreement with Iberwind's owners, CK Infrastucture Holding and Power Assets Holding, is expected to conclude later this year, subject to regulatory approval.

"Iberwind is one of Portugal's leading wind energy companies, and a clear strategic fit with our existing business across Europe," said Ventient CEO Mark Jones.
