In 2016 we completed our first acquisition in Colombia with the purchase of Isagen, a 3,032 MW portfolio of principally hydroelectric generating capacity. Isagen is the third-largest power generation company in Colombia and includes the country’s largest operating hydro power generating facility. Isagen’s portfolio includes a 3,800 MW development pipeline providing strong long-term growth potential in a market which, despite considerable growth in the last 20 years, is still undersupplied from a long-term perspective.


Case Studies

488 MW Hydro, Wind and Biomass Acquisition

In 2015, our Brazilian platform doubled in size with the acquisition of a diverse portfolio of 488 megawatts. The transaction was an important achievement, as it marked the group’s expansion into new technologies – biomass and wind – in Latin America, and represented an addition of 163 megawatts of hydroelectric assets, 150 megawatts of wind farms and 175 megawatts of biomass plants to our portfolio in Brazil. It also represented the beginning of our operations in the state of São Paulo and the Northeast region of the country.

25 MW Hydroelectric Construction Project

The Serra dos Cavalinhos I SHHP project represents a significant achievement for the Brazil platform. Located in Rio Grande do Sul, Cavalinhos I has 25 megawatts of installed capacity and generates enough energy to power 50,000 homes. The hydro was commissioned in the first quarter of 2017.
