Windvision has today acquired Vortex Energy Belgium to further expand its solar and wind energy generation capabilities in the Belgian market to reach 500MW of total capacity. Through this acquisition, Windvision aims to continue its innovative approach to delivering more sustainable energy.
Simon Neerinckx, CEO of Windvision: “The acquisition of Vortex Energy Belgium is an important milestone for Windvision. It allows us to reinforce our resources and capabilities to develop new projects in Belgium. We are delighted to be joining forces with the expert team at Vortex Energy Belgium and together we will strive for a greener future.”
Vortex Energy Belgium is the Belgian subsidiary of Vortex Energy, a German-based, energy industry leader. Founded in 2017, Vortex Energy Belgium has developed a portfolio of 244 MW onshore wind and 34 MW solar energy projects in 15 locations in Wallonia.
Taking concrete action against climate change
Windvision’s development strategy is a response to current societal challenges in energy decarbonization, an area of development strongly supported by the EU.
This new milestone further strengthens Windvision’s position as a major player in renewable energy generation. It demonstrates the company’s commitment to contributing to the ambitious EU Green Deal and supporting a sustainable future for all.
The newly combined entity will focus on portfolio development and the proactive sourcing of new growth opportunities. The well-established expertise and deep sector knowledge of the Vortex Energy Belgium team will be a valuable asset in achieving Windvision’s development objectives.
Since BlackRock's investment in Windvision last August, through its Global Renewable Power III fund (“GRP III,”), the company has expanded its activities in Belgium, France and Spain. The Windvision group is looking to grow its specialist team France, where it was recently awarded two projects through a public tender for wind energy. In Belgium, Windvision is looking forward to starting the construction of its first windfarm in Flanders in Spring 2021.
