Posted: 19th February 2021

The firm has advised leading global renewable energy developer BayWa r.e. UK on the acquisition of High Constellation Wind Farm from Blue Energy.

A multidisciplinary team from independent UK law firm Burges Salmon has advised BayWa r.e. UK, the leading global renewable energy developer, on its acquisition of High Constellation Wind Farm from Blue Energy.

The proposed wind farm is located on the Kintyre peninsula in Scotland and, once installed, its ten turbines will have a capacity of 50MW. Blue Energy, a leading UK developer of renewable energy infrastructure, will work closely with BayWa r.e. during the development of the project with a view to collaborating on other large-scale, Scottish wind farms in the future.

From Burges Salmon’s Edinburgh office, Corporate Finance partner Danny Lee, supported by solicitor Niall Mackle, led the cross-sector team advising BayWa r.e. on the acquisition of High Constellation Wind Farm, with support from the firm’s Real Estate, Planning, and Energy, Power and Utilities teams.

Danny comments: “We’re delighted to have worked with Christine McGregor and her team once again to support BayWa r.e.’s commitment to helping to drive forward the growth of renewables in the UK and contributing to the government’s commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. The acquisition of High Constellation Wind Farm sees the business managing over 2,400MW of wind and solar capacity, and continuing its successful role in project development in Scotland.”
