MGT Teesside: Having the confidence to deliver

Developed by MGT Power and located in North-East England, Tees Renewable Energy Plant will be the world’s largest new-build biomass plant. Macquarie, partnering with MGT, successfully commercialised, structured and financed the project through development to financial close in August 2016, with construction due to be completed by 2020.

By structuring the required development funding, deal reached financial close on £900 million of total funding. It also demonstrated the commitment and flexibility of Macquarie in delivering capital and advice to clients at all stages of their business or project evolution.

Matt Booth, Head of Commodity Linked Investments, Commodities and Global Markets, and Chris Archer, Managing Director, Macquarie Capital, describe why Macquarie took on the project.
