The professional online marketplace for solar projects and operational solar power plants looks back on a successful first half of 2015. In addition to the completion of the largest transaction to date, the international trading platform could mandate further operational solar assets whose transaction processes are already in advanced stages. The growing business in the secondary solar market of operational solar assets now compensates the partly dramatic reduction of offers for project rights and new installations from mature solar markets in Europe.
Discreet approach of pre-qualified investors for large operational assets
With increasing size of offered solar farms and rooftop photovoltaic plants, a cautious sales process of ProjectForum becomes more and more important for vendors. This requires an extra secure approach going beyond the provision of a transparent online marketplace. „On the one hand, we secure the discretion of vendors of operational assets through strict pre-qualification of potential secondary investors “, said Karsten Kreissler, General Manager of the online marketplace www.project-forum.biz. „On the other hand, mandatory data rooms and our preliminary review of the plant documentation facilitate the efficient and critical offer evaluation by the potential buyers“. This approach allows an optimal allocation of the offered solar power plants between private investors, solar fund managers and other institutional investors.
Further solar power plants on sale
After the full placement of the 7.5 MWp solar power plant portfolio located in Bavaria (Germany) which was finally divided between a private and an institutional investor, further large-scale plants are being offered by various owners. ProjectForum hereby confirms the goal to extend its quality leadership position within the segment of trading operational solar assets. This convinces an increasing number of plant owners ready to sell who are otherwise confronted with questionable alternatives. These alternatives include brokers, advertising journals and open trading platforms which are often more interested to expensively and repeatedly sell offer data rather than completing a successful transaction.
ProjectForum operates www.project-forum.biz, the first international and professional online marketplace for solar projects and power plants. The marketplace is the direct link between project developers, EPC contractors and investors. All offers are checked for completeness and consistency before publication. Each offer is associated with its own data room in which the comprehensive project documentation is stored. This ensures that only real projects are offered and unnecessary middlemen are excluded. The team of ProjectForum4t2 has many years of proven experience in the development, planning, and implementation, as well as financing and management of solar power plants in Europe. Project Forum 4t2 GmbH was founded in 2010 and is based in Hamburg.
