Dover, DE, Nov. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pacific Green Technologies, Inc. ("Pacific Green", OTCQB: PGTK) announces that it has reached financial close on a £120 million (US$146 million) senior debt facility (the “Facility”) for Pacific Green’s 249 MW / 373.5 MWh Sheaf Energy Park battery energy storage system in Kent, England (“Sheaf Energy Park”).
The Facility is provided by a two-bank syndicate, with National Westminster Bank plc (“NatWest”) and UK Infrastructure Bank Limited (“UKIB”) contributing £60 million (US$73 million) each. The Facility will be used to fund the development and construction of Sheaf Energy Park, following which repayment will occur on a 10 year amortization profile upon the start of commercial operations.
Scott Poulter, Pacific Green’s CEO, commented: “Sheaf Energy Park represents one of the largest project-financed battery energy storage systems in the world. We are pleased to have NatWest’s and UKIB’s participation in the Facility, which is a strong confirmation of the robustness of the project.”
Jacob Lloyd, Head of Specialist Asset Finance at NatWest, added: “Pacific Green is one of the fastest growing independent renewable energy developers, and we are excited to support them with Sheaf Energy Park and future projects to come as they continue their growth in the renewable energy sector.”
John Flint, CEO of UKIB, added: “The rapid scale-up of renewables onto the grid means the UK needs more storage capacity, and we need it fast. Our support for Pacific Green and the Sheaf Energy Park project is a great example of how UKIB’s debt financing can help accelerate large storage projects to bring them online sooner, while also providing crucial market confidence in the sector.”

Havila Kystruten AS: Fourth quarter 2023 accounts28.2.2024 22:24:49 CET | Press release
Summary The company has completed its first quarter with full operation of all four ships. Revenue in the fourth quarter was MNOK 249. Due to late clarification on the delivery of the last two ships, the revenue side is somewhat lower than if the pre-sale had started earlier. The last quarter of 2023 ended with an average fleet occupancy of 60%, an average cabin rate (ACR) of NOK 3,100 and a utilization rate of 1.8 per cabin. Occupancy and average price per cabin are higher than the fourth quarter of 2022, but are somewhat lower than the third quarter due to lower demand in the autumn and winter months. EBITDA was negative by MNOK 33.2 in the fourth quarter and MNOK 179 for the full year. Operating costs amounted to MNOK 283 in the fourth quarter and are mainly ordinary operating costs for operating four ships. Some of the operating costs are related to the number of passengers, while the largest cost items are not significantly affected by occupancy. MNOK 18 relates to extraordinary m
Havila Kystruten AS: Regnskap for fjerde kvartal 202328.2.2024 22:24:49 CET | Pressemelding
Sammendrag Selskapet har gjennomført sitt første kvartal med full drift av alle fire skip. Inntektene utgjorde i fjerde kvartal MNOK 249. Som følge av sen avklaring på levering av de to siste skipene, er inntektssiden noe lavere enn om forhåndssalget hadde startet før. Siste kvartal i 2023 endte med et gjennomsnittlig belegg for flåten på 60%, en gjennomsnittlig lugarrate (ACR) på NOK 3 100 og en utnyttelsesgrad på 1,8 per lugar. Belegg og gjennomsnittspris per lugar er høyere enn fjerde kvartal 2022, men er noe lavere enn tredje kvartal som følge av lavere etterspørsel i høst- og vintermånedene. EBITDA var negativ med MNOK 33,2 i fjerde kvartal og MNOK 179 for hele året. Driftskostnadene utgjør MNOK 283 i fjerde kvartal og er hovedsakelig ordinære driftskostnader for drift av fire skip. Deler av driftskostnadene er knyttet til antall passasjerer, mens de største kostnadspostene ikke er vesentlig påvirket av belegg. MNOK 18 gjelder ekstraordinære kostnader til markedsføring for å sikre
