Wind Energy – Acquisition Parkwind
After the initial agreement announced in March 2023, JERA from Japan has successfully closed an acquisition of 100% of the shares of Parkwind from Virya Energy.
The transaction has been approved by competition and other regulatory authorities. This transaction marks a significant milestone for JERA and Parkwind and signals a strategic shift in the offshore wind power industry.
JERA’s acquisition of Parkwind comes at a time when the world is increasingly recognizing the importance of renewable energy sources and the urgent need to increase low-carbon and renewable energy sources.
By adding Parkwind’s offshore projects to the existing portfolio of offshore wind projects in Taiwan and the United Kingdom, JERA will be able to increase its renewables capacity and potential to further diversify the existing renewable energy offerings.
The acquisition aligns with JERA’s long-term vision to scale up its clean energy platform of renewables and low greenhouse gas thermal power, contributing to sustainable development around the world.
François Van Leeuw and Eric Antoons, co-CEO’s of Parkwind NV, express their enthusiasm and optimism for the future: “With JERA’s worldwide expertise, resources and pipeline, we are confident that Parkwind’s portfolio will further expand across the borders. This partnership represents a significant milestone for our company and aligns perfectly with our long-term vision of creating a sustainable future powered by renewable energy. With the combined expertise and resources from both JERA and Parkwind, we are confident in our ability to accelerate our growth, expand our portfolio, and contribute even more to the global clean energy transition.”
