TEL AVIV, Israel, August 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Enlight Renewable Energy (TASE: ENLT) is the first Israeli renewable energy company to establish a significant footprint in the highly competitive Irish wind-market, after winning an ILS 100 million deal. ILS 14.5 million will be paid to an Irish developer and the rest will be invested in the construction of the project.
The company specializes in initiating, developing, constructing and operating clean electricity production projects from renewable energy sources. It expects yearly revenues of ILS 13 million for 25 years from this project.
The deal was closed in Ireland, as was announced at the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange on July 2015 http://maya.tase.co.il/bursa/report.asp?report_cd=979972.

According to Maya Shaltiel, founder and CEO of MAYA INTERNATIONAL STRATEGIC ALLIANCES, "Ireland's target of electricity production from renewables by 2020 is 40%, with market potential equal to 4000MW, compared to 2000MW of installed capacity today. Add this to a very supportive regulation and good wind resources and we have identified Ireland as a highly attractive market in which we tried to get a first footprint. It is also a very competitive market, and I am very pleased we were able to identify and win a good opportunity and close this deal. Enlight is a very strong player in the global renewable energy market and has a very promising potential in this market. I am looking forward to further fruitful cooperation with Enlight".
