WFW on CIP’s investment in two biogas plants  

Watson Farley & Williams (WFW) is advising Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) on its investment in two large industrial-scale biogas plants in Spain. The plants will be located at La Sentiu and Linyola, Catalonia. 

Established in 2012, CIP is a world leading investment management company specialised in energy infrastructure sector, including offshore and onshore wind, photovoltaic and biomass projects.  

Both biogas plants will use green sustainable organic waste including pig manure from local farms, slaughterhouse waste and other industrial organic waste. The biomethane produced by the plants will be injected into the existing natural gas grid which are expected to deliver total CO2 emissions savings of over 150,000 tons annually. 

The WFW Madrid energy team advising CIP is led by partners Javier Ester (pictured right) and David Diez (pictured left), supported by counsel Luis Gonzalez, senior associates Fernando Santos and Jacobo Hermidas, and associates Daniel Schaub and Paula Pérez.
