DLA Piper has advised Cooperative Rabobank U.A., Landesbank Baden-Wurttemberg, and Norddeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale on their financing for two Highfield Solar Limited solar projects in Ireland with a total capacity of 282 megawatts.
According to DLA Piper, Highfield Solar Limited is a joint venture between Ib Vogt GmbH, Highfield Energy, and Aura Power. In addition, according to the firm, “the projects secured capacity under the recent Renewable Energy Support Scheme 1 auctions in Ireland, and are a substantial addition to Highfield Solar Limited's existing and under-development Irish asset portfolio.”
DLA Piper’s team included Austria-based Partner Andreas Gunst and Senior Associate Kenneth Wallace-Mueller; UK-based Of Counsel Felix Ndi-Obiosa, Senior Associates Robert Cockburn, Jeremy MacIve, and Jacques Camilleri, Legal Director Marcus Lovatt, and Associates Adiya Gokarn, Natalie Webb, Emma Whitfield, Dolapo Oshin, and Sophie Linnell; Ireland-based Partners Conor Houlihan, Graham Quinn, and Kate Curneen, Legal Director Eileen Johnston, and Legal Executive Bernie Gallagher; and Germany-based Counsel Robert Hofbauer and Senior Associate Gabriela von Wietersheim.
