Watson Farley & Williams (“WFW”) is delighted to announce that two deals the firm advised on won awards at ‘The Asset Triple A Infrastructure Awards 2021’, both relating to the booming Taiwanese renewables sector.
The award-winning deals WFW advised on were:

This market-leading US$3bn deal included the largest debt package raised in the Taiwanese offshore wind market to date and was also recently named ‘IJGlobal Asia Pacific Project Finance & Export Finance Deal of the Year 2020’; and
- Vena Energy solar power project financing, which is understood to be Taiwan’s largest private ground mount utility scale solar project to date, was named ‘Renewable Energy Deal of the Year-Ground-Mounted Solar’ for the second consecutive year in a row.
