Linklaters advises the creditors on the financial restructuring of the Tees Renewable Energy Plant

Linklaters has advised a syndicate of banks and funds in connection with the financial restructuring of the 299MW Tees Renewable Energy Plant, the world’s largest pellet biomass power plant. The power plant is located at Teesside, UK and is operated by MGT Teesside Limited (the “Company”), itself controlled by Macquarie Group and Danish pension group PKA.

The restructuring was implemented through a court-sanctioned Restructuring Plan and resulted in, among other things, the restructuring of the existing debt and the raising of £80m in additional funding to support the Company’s liquidity requirements.

The Restructuring Plan was sanctioned on 13 July 2023 by Mr Justice Michael Green in the High Court of England and Wales.

Linklaters’ cross-practice team consisted of partners Nick Le Masurier and Rowland Light, managing associate Tibor Korman, and associates Thalia Ioannidou and Grace Nisbet (Restructuring & Insolvency), partner Ross Schloeffel, managing associates David Leeming, Asha Joy and Niamh Sheerin, and associate Yulia Toksarova (Energy & Infrastructure), partner Vinay Samani and associate Raveena Kallakuru (Capital Markets), and partner Angus Graham and counsel Jo Jimenez (Leveraged Finance).
