Pérez Alati, Grondona, Benites & Arntsen, Clifford Chance, Tavarone, Rovelli, Salim & Miani, White & Case, Tanoira Cassagne Abogados and Alston & Bird advised on the deal
Genneia signed a long-term financing agreement for US$ 131 million for the construction of the Chubut Norte III & IV wind farms (141 MW). Both projects were awarded under RenovAr 2.0. Financing is provided at SPVs Vientos Patagónicos S.A. and Genneia Vientos Sudamericanos S.A.
The financing involves a 15-year guaranteed non-recourse loan granted by KfW. The KfW loan is guaranteed by the German Export Credit Agency Euler Hermes.
