Octopus Cautha

Italia

EOS Consulting supported MPS in Technical Due Diligence activities, in order to evaluate the overall feasibility estimate of the investment and identify any project risks.

 

Project
Octopus Investments, part of the Octopus UK group and one of the leading investors in the European photovoltaic sector, completed the refinancing of a portfolio consisting of 5 photovoltaic plants, for a total capacity of 64 MW, located in Montalto di Castro, Lazio Region, and active since 2017. The transaction – worth € 23 million, concluded with the primary bank MPS Capital Services Bank for Companies (MPSCS) – is the first, historic investment in Europe for large-scale photovoltaic plants operating in “grid parity”, without any form of government subsidies or incentives. This initiative also represents the largest contribution to the total amount of photovoltaic power installed in Italy throughout 2017.

 

Performed activity
EOS Consulting supported MPS in Technical Due Diligence activities, in order to evaluate the overall feasibility estimate of the investment and identify any project risks. In addition to the verification of the works conformity carried out with the authorizations, the analysis deepened the overall consistency and investment technical sustainability, through the careful evaluation of the revenues achievable (starting from the probabilistic production scenario), investment costs and project operations, with particular focus on maintenance strategy. EOS also conducted an inspection on site, with the aim of determining the current status of plants and components, and ascertaining the absence of any impact themes on the long-term operations of plants.
