ARQIS has advised SachsenEnergie AG on the acquisition of a solar farm in Poland from German solar developers and installers Goldbeck Solar GmbH and SUNCATCHER Group.

SachsenEnergie AG acquired a 9-MWp solar power complex, being a cluster of two ground-mounted solar farms located in the western Polish town of Barlinek. Equipped with over 16,500 solar panels, the Barlinek plants are expected to be able to produce some 8,982 GWh of electricity per year, or enough to power around 4,000 households. Shortly after closing the productive site was commissioned in early 2024. The site is planned to be extended to 11.1 MW by the end of 2024.

As a full-service provider for public services, SachsenEnergie group reliably supplies customers throughout Saxony with energy, water, telecommunications, energy-related services and modern infrastructure.

SachsenEnergie AG is the largest municipal supplier in eastern Germany. The company would like to grow its renewable business via self-developed PV- and Wind-projects as well as further acquisitions in Germany and Europe.

With PV Barlinek, SachsenEnergie AG acquired for the first time a ground-mounted PV system in Poland and thereby increased their geographical footprint.

ARQIS acted for SachsenEnergie AG for the first time. The lead partner Dr. Lars Laeger was recommended by the market. The client is significant for the law firm as it impressively underlines the special focus on M&A in regulated industries, in particular renewables. ARQIS was supported in Poland by Wolf Theiss in local law.
