Assisting InterEnergy with ESMS Development

Prizma was recently engaged by InterEnergy Holdings to support its development of a corporate-level Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS) aligned with the IFC Performance Standards. Shortlink:

InterEnergy owns and operates power generation and distribution assets in Latin America and the Caribbean, and expects to make several investments throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2013, the World Bank's International Finance Corporation (IFC) acquired a minority equity interest in InterEnergy through a $100 million direct cash investment.

The investment in Gas Stream of Chile, an LNG distribution business, was InterEnergy's first foray outside the Dominican Republic. In April 2014, InterEnergy invested, through its subsidiary IEH Penonome Holdings, in a new 215 MW wind project in Panama with a total projected investment of US$ 427 million with Unión Eolica Panameña S.A. (UEP). This investment marks the second of InterEnergy's geographic expansion in Latin America and the Caribbean and also marks InterEnergy's return to Panama after a five-year hiatus.

As noted previously, Prizma has also been engaged by Unión Eolica Panameña II (UEPII), a Special Purpose Company controlled by InterEnergy Holdings, to support the 215 MW wind project in Penonomé, Panama.
