08:04 EDTCRARY, GE, MTU, HESEIF acquires Hess Corp's 50% stake in GE-powered Newark Energy Center
Energy Investors Funds, an energy-focused private equity firm, announced today that two EIF-managed funds have indirectly acquired an additional 50% ownership stake in the Newark Energy Center from Hess Corporation (HES) using a $590M loan from Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank (CRARY), GE unit (GE) GE Energy Financial Services and Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MTU). EIF-NEC, LLC, an entity jointly owned by the two EIF-managed funds, will use the loan to support the acquisition, construction and operation of the 705-megawatt power plant, which is being built using GE’s advanced combined-cycle, natural gas-fired turbine technology. With this acquisition, EIF-NEC now holds 100% of the equity interests in the Newark Energy Center. The three lenders served as co-lead arrangers and joint-book runners. Financial details of the transactions were not disclosed. The Newark Energy Center sits on 23 acres of brownfield industrial land in New Jersey, an optimal location with nearby gas supply and electrical interconnection point. The project has been under construction for nearly two years and is expected to begin commercial operations in May 2015. It will sell its energy and capacity into the PJM capacity market. Power Plant Management Services is managing construction, with NAES Corporation providing operations and maintenance and Direct Energy undertaking additional energy management services.
