CMS has advised the Modus Group on its sale of 49 solar power plants in Poland to Aberdeen Standard Investments SL Capital Infrastructure II fund. Weil, Gotshal & Manges advised the buyers on the deal.

The Modus Group focuses on renewable energy, mobility services, smart parking solutions, and the auto business. It owns photovoltaic projects in Spain, Italy, Lithuania, and Ukraine.
