SNP Schlawien Provides Advice to Landwärme on the Acquisition of the Balancing Group Management Division from Arcanum Energy

The commercial law firm SNP assisted Landwärme GmbH in acquiring the balancing group management division of the Arcanum Energy Group. The consulting comprised the legal advice on the acquisition as well as the drafting of the transaction contract. The parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

In the future, Landwärme and Arcanum Energy will complement each other along the bio-methane value chain. In acquiring the balancing group management division, Landwärme continues expanding its service business around the bio-methane trade. Concurrently, Arcanum Energy will intensify the focus on the project business, the commercial and technical facility operation of biogas treatment plants and energy production facilities, as well as mass balancing. This concentration on the respective fields of competence offers the chance for both corporations to efficiently further develop the bio-methane market.

Landwärme will continue the balancing group management of Arcanum Energy with the current employees in Unna with the name "Landwärme Service GmbH". Arcanum Energy Solutions GmbH will provide the services covering energy efficiency, records management and online platforms in the future.

Landwärme GmbH operates as bio-methane dealer, service provider and project developer in the European bio-methane market. Its trade portfolio encompasses more than 2.5 TWh bio-methane per year from the most various renewable input materials. Arcanum Energy is Germany's leading, independent specialist in the bio-methane sector for all issues relating to technology, redevelopment and new construction of biogas treatment plants.
