COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – June 17, 2024. Glentra Capital (‘Glentra’) is pleased to announce the acquisition of DVP Solar Worldwide (‘DVP’) from Everwood Fund V (‘Everwood’).

DVP develops utility-scale solar PV and BESS projects across Europe and Latin America. DVP, headquartered in Seville, Spain, was established in 2020 and today has more than 75 employees based out of 6 locations with on the ground presence in Spain, Italy, France, Germany and Colombia. DVP has a highly experienced management team with a long track-record within the solar and renewable finance industry.

The company focuses on agrivoltaics, which provide an opportunity to both mitigate the effects of the climate change on agriculture, alleviate concerns about land competition between solar parks and farming activities, safeguard biodiversity, and foster active involvement of local people and businesses, while delivering on cost competitive green power and CO2 emissions reductions.

Thereby, the acquisition of DVP fits well with Glentra’s strategy of investing into renewable growth platforms with strong management teams and a strategic focus on delivering projects that help solve the multi-dimensional objectives of the energy transition. Glentra will use its deep inhouse expertise within greenfield renewables to work actively with the DVP team in scaling the business and expanding its capabilities to include construction and operations across Europe.

Clifford Chance acted as legal counsel to Glentra. The investment was made on behalf of Glentra Fund I K/S.  

Henrik Tordrup, Managing Partner at Glentra, said: “We are thrilled to announce the acquisition of DVP and our partnership with the management team. Our complementary skillsets, shared vision for the company, and its strengthened financial position will enable DVP to accelerate its development and scale, and Glentra is looking forward to actively supporting the company in executing its business plan”.  

Eduardo Criado, Chief Executive Officer at DVP, added: “This is a pivotal moment for DVP. Glentra is an ideal partner for our growing company, with its long-term focus and strong commitment to providing capital for attractive infrastructure investments needed to deliver the energy transition.
