Hengeler Mueller advises Amprion on refinancing

30. March 2016

The transmission grid operator Amprion GmbH (“Amprion”) has entered into a EUR 750 m long-term syndicated loan to finance its operations and the redistribution mechanism under the EEG (German Renewable Energies Act). The new credit facility refinances a financing originally taken out in 2011 upon the separation of Amprion from the RWE group.

Hengeler Mueller advised Amprion in the context of the refinancing as on the original transaction in 2011. The Hengeler Mueller team included partners Thomas O. Cron and Nikolaus Vieten as well as associates Sabine Albrecht (all Financing, Frankfurt) and Sebastian Schneider (Energy, Berlin).
