Ancala Partners and Green Highland Renewables commission £13.6 million hydro scheme

Jump to the comments

Ancala Partners (‘Ancala’), the independent mid-market infrastructure investment manager, has now commissioned or acquired 11 investment projects through its portfolio company Green Highland Renewables (‘GHR’) with the completion of its latest hydro scheme at Loch Eilde Mor in the Highlands, Scotland.

The £13.6 million scheme, situated at Kinlochleven, is a high head run-of-river scheme with a 2MW triple-jet Pelton turbine. The project has the highest energy generation of all GHR projects to date and gives GHR storage capacity due to the loch-fed nature of the project.

The projects completed with GHR so far have a total capacity of 16 MW, which is sufficient to power 20,000 homes. 

Ancala believes the UK hydro sector offers the potential to deliver attractive, low-volatility returns.  It invested in GHR as a platform to execute a consolidation and development strategy within the sector and has since been proactively

implementing this approach. Since Ancala invested in GHR in April 2015, the company has experienced significant growth, which has included the development of nine hydro schemes and the acquisition of a further two hydro sites.

Spence Clunie, Managing Partner, Ancala Partners, commented:

“Prior to our investment, GHR was largely a development focused company but now it is also a portfolio owner and operator of a high quality and diversified portfolio of hydro assets. Loch Eilde Mor marks another significant milestone in GHR’s growth.”

Ian Cartwright, Managing Director, Green Highland Renewables, commented:

“Loch Eilde Mor has been a very exciting project for us and demonstrates our ability to develop large hydro projects. Ancala’s involvement has been invaluable in allowing us to build a portfolio of such projects.”

Earlier this year, Ancala announced that it had raised £51 million of debt facilities for Green Highland Hydro, the asset ownership vehicle for hydro power assets developed by GHR. The facility has been used to support construction of the schemes and refinance capital invested in operational assets. It followed a quadrupling in the size of GHR’s portfolio since Ancala’s initial investment. Since Ancala invested, GHR has significantly outperformed its operational and financial targets.
