GLOBAL ECOPOWER : Global EcoPower completes the financial close of the Vay Marsac wind power plant


Aix-en-Provence (France), February 18, 2015. Global EcoPower (Alternext - FR0011289198 - ALGEP), constructor of power plants using renewable energy sources, announces the signing, through its subsidiary Parc Eolien de La Vallée du Don[1] (PEVD), of a credit agreement of ¤ 12.7 million and a VAT bridge loan of ¤ 1.1 million, allowing the financing of its 10 MW wind farm.

The lending banking pool is led by Triodos Bank, a bank under Dutch law, which syndicated 50% of the credit with Bpifrance Financement. The VAT bridge loan was contracted with Bpifrance Financement.

This is a project financing for a period of 15 years, without recourse to GEP, based on the future cash flows to be generated by the wind farm. The interest on the loan will be calculated on a variable rate basis until the commissioning of the power plant. At that date, the variable rate will be converted into a fixed rate based on the average rate of government bonds (TME) plus the agreed margin, with a reimbursement of the capital over 60 quarters.

To date, Global EcoPower continues the construction of this wind farm on behalf of PEVD, in the municipalities of Nozay, Vay and Marsac-sur-Don (department of Loire-Atlantique): the earthworks, platforms, reinforcement and pouring of concrete are completed. The Spanish provider, GAMESA, will deliver, install and maintain five G90 wind turbines with a hub height of 100 meters and a unit capacity of 2 MW.

The commissioning of the power plant and its connection to the ERDF grid are scheduled in Q4 2015.


Philippe Perret, Executive Vice President of Global EcoPower, declares:

« The signing of this first financing demonstrates the confidence of senior lenders and the quality of operations held by the GEP group. The historically low long-term interest rates in France significantly increase the profitability of our projects, financed by more than 80% debt. »
