Goldbeck obtains $49.7 million from RGreen for Canada and Chile solar projects

Goldbeck Solar, a German solar developer, has acquired a $47.9 million HoldCo loan facility from French asset management RGreen Invest to build four solar projects totaling 93 MW. The finance is provided by RGreen through its Infrabridge III senior debt fund. The four ground-mounted solar power facilities, with respective capacities of 69 MW and 24 MW, are situated in Chile and Canada. In a partnership with Pathfinder Clean Energy, Goldbeck Solar is developing the two Canadian projects, both of which are situated in Alberta.

They are anticipated to operate on a “fully merchant” basis and have capacities of 61 MW and 8 MW, respectively. The two Chilean projects, which would generate 12 MW, will be situated in the province of Bo-Bo. They will benefit from the Pequeños Medios de Generación Distribuida programme.

Earlier this month, CEE Group and solar developer Goldbeck Solar completed the 154.7 MW Döllen solar park in Brandenburg’s Prignitz region. The solar project was activated by symbolically attaching a ‘green plug’ to the power grid.  The project was developed by Goldbeck Solar in collaboration with Antilike Solar, a company based in Elmenhorst/Lichtenhagen, on a former agricultural area in Döllen, municipality of Gumtow, district of Prignitz.
