The Wildflower Project consists of two power plants in Southern California: (1) the Indigo plant located near Palm Springs with output capacity of 138MW and (2) the Larkspur plant located near San Diego with output capacity of 94MW. The two power plants are powered by five GE LM-6000 Sprint gas turbines. The Project will continue to sell 100 percent of it's capacity and energy under tolling agreements with Shell affiliates, Coral Power, L.L.C. and Coral Energy Management, LLC.
DGC's strategy is to expand its business through the development and acquisition of power projects in which it will hold the majority ownership interests. The acquisition of the Indigo and Larkspur plants is an implementation of this strategy.
In this transaction, Dexia Global Structured Finance and Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy were retained by DGC as its financial advisor and legal advisor respectively.
