Mott MacDonald advises on electricity and gas transaction, Romania

Mott MacDonald has advised Allianz Capital Partners during its acquisition of a 30% stake in Delgaz Grid – formerly known as E.ON Distributie Romania – the biggest electricity and gas distribution network operator in northern Romania. The acquisition is the largest transaction in the country’s energy sector for several years.

Delgaz Grid owns and operates an electricity distribution grid of over 80,000km, as well as a gas distribution pipeline system of over 20,000km that serves approximately three million customers.

During the acquisition process, Mott MacDonald studied the capacity and condition of Delgaz Grid assets, reviewing both operation and maintenance and environmental and social performance. The consultancy also studied the vendor’s capital and operational expenditure in conjunction with a technical review. Additionally, Mott MacDonald utilised its specialist knowledge of local standards and procedures, meeting regularly with Delgaz Grid’s senior management to gain a deeper insight into their overall structure.

Fay Lelliott, Mott MacDonald’s project manager, said: “Being able to provide electrical engineers with Romanian language capability and utilise our local country office for language and translation support was of great benefit during this project. Our international project team’s depth of knowledge from similar transactions allowed us to target our review and clarification requests effectively to release an enhanced understanding of the assets and ultimately a successfully outcome for Allianz Capital Partners.”
