Borlänge Energi divests its portfolio of small-scale hydropower stations to Locus Energy

Locus Energy AB, SEB Nordic Energy’s portfolio company, has acquired AB Borlänge Energi’s seven hydropower stations. With the acquisition, Locus Energy further strengthens its presence in Dalarna and complements the portfolio of already existing investments in both hydropower and wind power.

“Borlänge Energi has made the assessment that a new owner with cutting-edge expertise in small-scale hydropower and strong long-term investment capacity creates the best conditions for securing Borlänge’s small-scale hydropower in the long term for the benefit of Dalarna and the region. We have found such a new active owner with better conditions to develop the business than Borlänge Energi in Locus Energy”, says Mats-Erik Olofsson, CEO of Borlänge Energi.
