Supported by Baker Tilly as legal advisor, HANSAINVEST Real Assets GmbH (HANSAINVEST), a Signal Iduna Group company, is investing EUR 50 million in mezzanine capital in a portfolio of 231 solar parks in Poland owned by energy producer SUN IPP GmbH & Co. KG (SUN IPP). The total output of the financed plants amounts to around 257 Megawatts-peak (MWp).

First investment in Polish renewable energy market

SUN IPP is part of the SUNfarming Group, based in Erkner near Berlin. With the investment, Poland is becoming the group’s second main market. HANSAINVEST is thus expanding its position in the field of renewable energies, investing in Poland for the first time. The company already manages a volume of EUR 1.9 billion in the field of renewable energies and infrastructure – including individually structured direct investments, fund investments and mezzanine financing.
