Conquest, a fund manager focusing on the infrastructures of the energy transition in Europe, through its fund Conquest Infrastructure SLP – Sustainable 2, has completed the concomitant acquisitions of two wind farms developed by Winda Energy, the Finnish renewable energy developer majority-owned by Czech BHM Renewables, part of the investment firm BHM group. The two onshore wind projects have a combined capacity of 182MW. Furthermore, the cooperation encompasses additional onshore wind projects totalling 500MW.
