    Ashurst has advised Commerz Real AG's KlimaVest Fund on entering into a strategic partnership with AMPYR Solar Europe ("ASE") on the development of a pipeline of large-scale solar PV projects in Germany. The cooperation relates to an initial portfolio of three solar parks with a combined capacity of ca. 200 MWp. Under the partnership, the solar PV projects will be developed by ASE up to a ready-to-build status and ASE will provide EPC management services and support with the selection of O&M service providers to the solar parks under KlimaVest's ownership. The power produced by the solar parks will be marketed on a fully merchant (PPA) basis.

    The Ashurst team was led by partner Dr Maximilian Uibeleisen (energy/infrastructure) and partner Dr Benedikt von Schorlemer (M&A/corporate). Further team members were partner Alexander Ballmann (restructuring), partner Dr Anders Kraft (tax), counsel Volker Germann (corporate), counsel Holger Mlynek (commercial contracts), associate Dr Simon Groneberg (energy, environmental law), associate Jan Ischreyt (corporate) and counsel Bernd Bäumer (real estate).
