EIT InnoEnergy Becomes Third Largest Owner of Minesto

EIT InnoEnergy has joined BGA Invest and Midroc New Technology as major shareholders in Minesto after converting previously issued warrants into shares.

The European Innovation Hub for Sustainable Energy, EIT InnoEnergy, which is supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology, has utilized subscription options that they received for previous investments in Minesto.

EIT InnoEnergy has subscribed for a total of 7,121,561 shares in Minesto AB with the support of the warrants. This makes EIT InnoEnergy the third largest owner in Minesto after the main owners BGA Invest and Midroc New Technology.

In 2015, EIT InnoEnergy decided on its first investment in Minesto of EUR 3.5 million, which was then its largest investment ever in marine energy. EIT InnoEnergy has since continued to support Minesto through further investments in the continued development and commercialization of Minesto’s marine energy technology Deep Green.

The technology, the team and the core investors in Minesto, have prevailed for taking such a decision. Projects in Holyhead and Faroe Islands clearly show there is a high potential for a very successful commercial evolution in the upcoming years. This is a cornerstone for the blue energy sector, and as a result is of great value to us,” says Javier Sanz, thematic leader for renewable energy at EIT InnoEnergy and board member of Minesto.
