In August 2013, Japanese trading and finance house Marubeni agreed to take a 25 per cent stake in pioneering renewables developer Mainstream 40 Big industry moves in Renewable Power for a reported €100m (US$138m), in a deal that will also see Marubeni take equity stakes in Mainstream’s projects. Officials from Marbueni said that they were particularly interested in Mainstream’s widespread participation in UK offshore wind projects. Mainstream founder and CEO Eddie O’Connor said the deal means that ‘We can say to a country or a customer, “Not only do we have the capability to develop the project, but we can also bring along someone who may invest in the equity and ownership”’ (Stromsta 2013b).

Critics said that Vestas had overpaid for the poorly performing NEG Micon, calling the deal a rescue rather than a merger. The merger deal had been under discussion for over a year, but NEG Micon reportedly ‘surrendered’ to a takeover by Vestas after it was forced to issue a profit warning in November 2003 (Windpower Monthly 2004).

The first €800m (US$1,000m) will be invested during the first 12 months after closing the agreement. ‘We are going to combine efforts to become worldwide leaders in renewable energy through joint development and ownership of selected renewables projects’, EDP CEO António Mexia says (Mexia 2011). CTG Vice-President Lin Chuxue told reporters in Portual: ‘EDPR is an excellent platform for the future for Three Gorges’, adding it will help the group ‘to arrive at other businesses and other markets’.
