Investec Bank has arranged the long term refinancing of a portfolio of four UK projects totalling 40 MW solar portfolio owned by Canadian Solar.

Investec originally provided a short term bridging facility that funded the portfolio shortly after its connection to the electricity grid.

Olivier Fricot, head of Power and Infrastructure Lending, Investec, said: “Having supported Canadian Solar in its first ROC based project financing Investec is delighted to have arranged a long term financing solution on very attractive terms to Canadian Solar. It further endorses the expertise of our team in the UK renewables sectors where we continue to see a strong level of lending and M&A activities.”

"We are delighted to complete this project financing facility" said Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar. "This facility underscores Canadian Solar's strength as a global tier-1 player that has broad support from international financial institutions. We look forward to continuing our partnership with BayernLB and Investec to support the sustainable growth of our global project business."
