BluPine buys Acme solar assets

A unit of London-based private equity firm Actis, BluPine Energy, has bought solar power assets from Acme group for an enterprise value of Rs 1,700 crore. The acquired assets are housed in 14 special purpose vehicles.

The acquisition will add 312 megawatts of solar capacity to BluPine Energy, which was incorporated in 2021, the people said. BluPine has rapidly expanded capacities through acquisitions and currently has a renewable capacity of 1.8 gigawatts.

In November last year, the company announced the acquisition of solar projects of 400 megawatts capacity from Atha Group.

Actis, which has $12.73 billion in assets under management, had previously announced plans to invest $800 million (Rs 6,666 crore) in BluPine Energy and ramp up the capacity to 4 gigawatts eventually. A substantial part of this growth could come from acquisitions, said people aware of the matter.

On its part, Actis had successfully built and divested two renewable energy companies in India, namely, Ostro Energy and Sprng Energy. It sold Ostro Energy to ReNew Power in 2018 for $1.63 billion, and subsequently sold Sprng Energy to Shell for $1.55 billion last year.
