DONG Energy has entered into an agreement to sell 50% of Race Bank, a 573MW UK offshore wind farm project, to Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 5 and Macquarie Capital, with equal interests. As part of the transaction DONG Energy and Macquarie have agreed a framework for sharing construction risk.

Race Bank is currently in advanced stages of construction and is expected to be fully commissioned in 2018. The total transaction proceeds, consisting of the acquisition of a 50% ownership share and commitment to fund 50% of the project CAPEX including transmission assets, amount to approx. GBP 1.6 billion. The proceeds are payable from 2016 until completion of the project, which is expected in 2018 and is funded by a combination of project finance debt and equity. DONG Energy will manage the completion of the construction phase under a construction management agreement. DONG Energy has also entered into an agreement to provide operations and maintenance services from its O&M base in Grimsby and to provide a route to market for the power production and green certificates for Macquarie’s 50% share of Race Bank.
