Dresser-Rand And MBB Clean Energy AG Sign Agreement For The Disposition Of Three Photovoltaic Power Plants

MUNICH and HOUSTON, Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dresser-Rand Group Inc. ("Dresser-Rand") (NYSE: DRC), a global supplier of rotating equipment solutions to the oil, gas, petrochemical, power, and process industries has reached agreement with MBB Clean Energy AG ("MBB Clean Energy") for the latter's acquisition of three power plants designed, built and commissioned by Dresser-Rand in Italy. Dresser-Rand will provide long term O&M services which should be beneficial to MBB Clean Energy and is consistent with Dresser-Rand's business model to stay integrally involved with its equipment throughout its total life cycle.

The power plants represent 11 MW of renewable energy to be added to MBB Clean Energy's renewable energy portfolio. The plants are in full operation with approved feed in tariffs. The plants, with a total collector area of 77,680 sqm, consist of 44,764 polycrystalline silicon solar modules with an output of 245 Wt that, in 2012, produced an energy yield of about 16 million kilowatt hours. This corresponds to an annual electricity consumption of approximately 4,000 households.

MBB Clean Energy aims to become one of the leading clean energy producers in Germany, with the acquisition and operation of European and International energy projects. Its intent is to set standards for sustainable, environmentally friendly and economically viable electricity production and, therefore, to significantly contribute to a responsible energy supply. In the following years, its goal is to build up a power plant portfolio with a nominal capacity of 1.500 Megawatt (MW). As part of the MBB Projects Group, MBB Clean Energy uses its technical know-how and experience for potential investment objects in the economic, fiscal, technical and legal due diligence. Criteria for a positive due diligence include a return-on-investment (ROI) from the income less operating expenses (EBITDA) of at least 10%. MBB Clean Energy has issued a bearer bond on the German stock market with a 6 year term paying a 6.25% yearly fixed interest rate, based on renewable energy projects.

As an international investor, MBB Clean Energy exclusively puts its trust in the acquisition and operation of existing power plants with a secured grid connection and predictable cash flows. It does not execute the project development and construction of such facilities. Only investment opportunities which meet the high quality requirements of the MBB Clean Energy and fulfill predefined fixed revenue and return on investment are included in the portfolio. Dresser-Rand, as a global leader in energy solutions, has provided hundreds of power generation and renewable energy solutions, including a substantial number of photovoltaic power plants all over the world, and is a leading supplier of equipment and solutions.
