Adven announced that its acquisition by institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management has now closed.

Jyrki Vainionpää, CEO of Adven Group, said:
“I am very happy that Adven has a leading infrastructure investor as our new owner and I look forward to delivering our ambitious agenda together. The open-end structure and long-term investment horizon match very well with our long-dated customer contracts and relationships. Our investors said that they are delighted to invest in Adven, a platform that significantly enhances scale and capability in the region alongside their ownership of Värmevärden. I want to thank AMP Capital and Infracapital Teams as well as all board members for great cooperation and valuable support in recent years.”

“I firmly believe in the combined potential of Adven and Värmevärden, as two independently strong businesses, coming together to create a leading provider of Industrial Energy Solutions and District Heating.”
