The initial sales process has been finalised, with the ownership interest being acquired by Stadtwerke Aachen AG (STAWAG) for €42.3m. The transaction is part of Dong Energy's plan to divest non-core activities.
Stadtwerke Lübeck holds a 7.25% stake in Nysted. Dong Energy owns 42.75% and PensionDanmark 50%. Nysted is notable as one of the first to receive investment from a pension fund.
