Astris is pleased to announce the successful closing and funding of a 102 MWp solar PV facility in El Salvador. Astris advised project sponsor-developer Neoen on all matters pertaining to project development and financing all the way to this successful first disbursement on the first non recourse financing in the power sector in the country. The financing package has been raised from a club of agencies including the Inter-American Investment Corporation, the Canadian Climate Fund, and Proparco. To make this investment possible, Astris played a pivotal role in negotiating key amendments to the PPA to achieve a threshold level of bankability.
Astris is advising Neoen on renewable projects in Portugal, in Mexico and in El Salvador, in connection with the upcoming auction (UPDATE: Neoen, advised by Astris, was successfully awarded 119.9 MW of PV in this subsequent auction).
