Luxembourg-based investment fund PEARL Infrastructure Capital is the new owner of a 5 MWe biomass cogeneration plant in Croatia.

Energy service company Resalta has sold its biomass cogeneration plant in the Croatian municipality of Slatina. According to the company, the transaction is one of the largest foreign investments in the biomass renewables sector in Croatia.

The Slatina biomass plant was sold through Energy 9, the Resalta subsidiary that owned the powerplant in partnership with Iskraemeco, Resalta said on its website.
