Statkraft acquires Spanish based renewables business Enerfin from Elecnor Group
Milestone acquisition for Statkraft, Europe’s largest generator of renewable energy
(Oslo/Madrid) The acquisition of Enerfin adds 1.5 GW of operational wind power, wind and solar capacity currently under construction plus a sizeable pipeline of projects in development to Statkraft’s portfolio. This reinforces the Norwegian company’s position as a major international renewable energy player, and significantly strengthens its position in Spain and Brazil.
Statkraft, Europe’s largest generator of renewable energy and a global player in energy market operations, has reached an agreement for the acquisition of the Spanish renewable energy company Enerfin.
Enerfin is a subsidiary of Elecnor Group, a leading Spanish engineering and construction business. The transaction has an estimated enterprise value of 1.8 billion EUR, including equity and debt, subject to customary adjustments at completion.
Enerfin's renewable energy platform includes 1.5 GW in operation and under construction, and a solid pipeline of projects at various stages of development.
“This is a milestone acquisition for Statkraft. Enerfin is a solid, well-run company with a highly competent organisation and an attractive portfolio that fits well with Statkraft’s current activities. The deal will create further value for the customers, our owner and society as it constitutes a major contribution to the green energy transition towards zero emissions”, says Christian Rynning-Tønnesen, CEO of Statkraft.
The portfolio comes with significant opportunities for the repowering of wind farms, as well as hybridization and battery storage possibilities. In addition, the acquisition enables increased market operations in both Spain and Brazil.
“The acquisition reinforces Statkraft’s position as Europe’s largest producer of renewable energy and places the company among the top ten wind power producers in Spain, complementing our solar projects portfolio there. The acquisition will also position Statkraft among the three largest wind power producers in Brazil, with over 1.5 GW of installed capacity, and increasing our operational scale,” says Rynning-Tønnesen.
The transaction is dependent on public approvals in the respective countries and is expected to be closed during the first half of 2024.
Enerfin employs a skilled team of approximately 170 people, mainly based in Madrid. Statkraft looks forward to welcoming all new employees to deliver on the vision to renew the way the world is powered.

The Group produces hydropower, wind power, solar power, gas-fired power and supplies district heating. Statkraft is a global company in energy market operations.

2023 var et godt år med opkøb og finansielle resultater som forventet29.2.2024 13:07:25 CET | pressemeddelelse
Selskabsmeddelelse nr. 2-2024 29. februar 2024 North Media koncernchef Lasse Brodt siger om udviklingen i 2023: ”Vi leverede et finansielt resultat i tråd med de senest udmeldte forventninger, hvilket var tilfredsstillende i lyset af, at flere af vores forretninger i løbet af året var påvirket af den økonomiske udvikling og usikre markedsforhold. FK Distribution oplevede, som forventet, et strukturelt fald i volumen, der påvirkede omsætningen, mens BoligPortal for første gang leverede en omsætning over 100 millioner kr. og det bedste driftsresultat nogensinde. Ofir og Bekey havde faldende omsætning og indtjening og vi har iværksat strategiske tiltag for at vende udviklingen. 2023 var også året, hvor vi eksekverede på vores strategi om at købe, drive og optimere volumenforretninger. Med købet af SDR Svensk Direktreklam AB, Sveriges største private distributør af tryksager og lokalaviser, udvider vi vores position i det skandinaviske marked.” Finansielle nøgletal: Mio. kr.4. kvartalHelår
2023 was a good year with acquisitions and financial results as guided29.2.2024 13:07:25 CET | Press release
Announcement no. 2-2024 29 February 2024 North Media’s Group CEO Lasse Brodt commented on the performance in 2023: “We’re delivering financial results in line with our most recent guidance, which we consider to be satisfactory in light of the fact that several of our businesses were still affected by the economic climate and the uncertain market conditions. FK Distribution reported a drop in volumes, as expected, which impacted our revenue, while BoligPortal delivered revenue of more than DKK 100 million for the first time ever and its best ever EBIT. Ofir and Bekey both reported declining revenue and earnings, and we have taken strategic steps to reverse that performance. This was also the year when we executed on our strategy to acquire, run and optimise high-volume businesses. By acquiring SDR Svensk Direktreklam AB, Sweden’s largest private-sector distributor of leaflets and local newspapers, we have expanded our Scandinavian position in that market.” Financial highlights: DKK mQ4F
