Investment Adviser Announces Further Senior Hire

 

Bluefield Solar (LON:BSIF) is a UK income fund focused on acquiring and actively managing UK-based renewable energy and storage projects to generate progressive, long term dividends for its shareholders whilst furthering the decarbonisation of the energy system. The Company is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Covington as Investment Director at the Company's investment adviser.

 

Michael Covington joins from Alpha Real Capital where he was the renewables investment director from November 2017 to September 2021. Prior to that, he was a managing partner at the Barcelona based sustainable investment specialist, SI Capital Private Equity. Michael also brings significant investment banking experience from his time at Dresdner Kleinwort Benson and Piper Jaffray. Since May 2021, he has been audit committee chair of London listed Getech Group plc (GTC:LN), a leader in data and knowledge for the exploration and development of new energy and strategic mineral resources.

 

James Armstrong, Managing Partner at Bluefield Partners, said: "We are delighted to announce the appointment of Michael.  He joins us as Investment Director and will add significant wind, solar and capital markets expertise alongside our existing team's extensive investment capabilities and experience.

 

"Michael has long and relevant M&A experience in the European wind and solar sectors where we are seeing many attractive opportunities following the broadening of the Company's mandate in June 2020 and building on the recent portfolio acquisition of 109 small scale UK onshore wind turbines from Arena Capital Partners for approximately £60 million."

 

Bluefield is already making excellent progress in broadening its focus, and is looking to diversify its portfolio, branching out into storage and other renewable technologies.

 

Michael Covington commented: "I am so excited to be joining the Bluefield Partners' team having personally followed closely their impressive progress since the IPO of Bluefield Solar in 2013. I am keen to add my experience in the wind and solar sectors to the Bluefield Partners investment platform."
