Hamburg, 4th Mai 2020: Energy and Infrastructure SME Fund, managed by Lithuanian-based investment company Lords LB Asset Management, is currently finalising the construction and grid connection of its 66 x 1 MWp photovoltaic projects distributed over northern Poland. For the Operation and Maintenance of the portfolio, Energy and Infrastructure SME Fund awards greentech with a 5 year full-scope O&M contract concluded with 8 fund-owned special purpose vehicles established in Poland.
Commencing with the provisional acceptance greentech will take care of all major O&M tasks such as monitoring, reporting, incident management, preventive and corrective maintenance as well as landscape management and module cleaning.
Whilst the sites are on their way to provisional acceptance by Lords LB Asset Management’s fund, the onboarding to greentech’s monitoring platform and processes has already begun to secure a seamless transition and gapless surveillance of every project. The site-specific start of the O&M services is scheduled for the second quarter of 2020.

“It is very exciting to be entering the Polish market as O&M provider for this portfolio. We highly appreciate the trustful partnership with Lords and can’t wait to start the operations for all these sites.” (Jörn Carstensen, Managing Director at greentech)
