Natixis and CEPAC in relation to the refinancing of a portfolio of 15 rooftop photovoltaic power plants

Linklaters advised Natixis and Caisse d'Epargne et de Prévoyance Provence-Alpes-Corse as mandated lead arrangers and lenders and Natixis as agent and hedging bank in relation to the refinancing of a portfolio of 15 rooftop photovoltaic power plants located on hypermarkets in the south of France, with an aggregated installed capacity of 31.17 MWp. The plants are co-owned by the DIF Infrastructure II investment fund and GreenYellow.


This innovative structure included both project finance and acquisition finance sub-structures and was one of the most complex of the renewable portfolio refinancings that came through in France recently. The facilities included two dedicated tranches for institutional investors. The multi-jurisdictional cross-practice Linklaters team assembled for this project was led by Banking and Projects Partner François April. He was closely supported by Banking and Projects Managing Associate Samuel Bordeleau.
