February 28, 2014

'With the sale of VPC, Vattenfall consistently continues to deliver on its consolidation since 2009 as a reaction to the difficult market conditions in the energy sector'

Vattenfall has agreed to sell its German engineering consultancy Vattenfall Europe Power Consultant GmbH (VPC) to palero capital GmbH (Palero). Completion is expected during the first quarter 2014. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

'With the sale of VPC, Vattenfall consistently continues to deliver on its consolidation since 2009 as a reaction to the difficult market conditions in the energy sector,' says Tuomo Hatakka, Head of Region Continental/UK.

Vattenfall Europe Consultant East with its business seat in Belgrade, Serbia, and Lausitzer Analytik GmbH will also be acquired by Palero.

VPC has a total of 535 employees of which 200 work in the main office in Vetschau. Employees also work in other VPC offices, among them, Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden and Hamburg
