Westbrooke Alternative Asset Management, a leading multi-asset manager and advisor, is pleased to announce the successful conclusion of a partnership agreement with Fibon Group, a prominent South African developer and operator of renewable energy projects. This strategic collaboration aims to bolster South African companies in their transition towards sustainable energy solutions, particularly in the realm of solar power and battery energy storage systems (BESS).

Through its Westbrooke Renewable Energy Alternative strategy, Westbrooke has concluded a dynamic funding transaction with Fibon Group. This initiative provided essential capital to 11 Solar Power and BESS projects for the financial year ending 29 February 2024, marking a significant milestone in advancing green energy initiatives within the region.

Fibon Group, with its distinguished track record spanning 12 years, has been a key player in developing and constructing behind-the-meter Solar Power Projects in South Africa. Looking ahead to the financial year ending 28 February 2025, Fibon Group will oversee more than R175 Million worth of Solar Power and BESS projects. Additionally, the company is currently engaged in the construction of a 100MWp Solar Power project, scheduled for completion in 2026, thereby propelling its assets under management to over R1 Billion.

“Westbrooke’s Renewable Energy Alternatives strategy has been developed to assist partners like Fibon to expedite the transition to green energy in South Africa through solar PV projects. Working with Fibon over the last year has been a great start to what we believe will be a fruitful partnership as we continue to support the business with capital to deliver on its project pipeline and growth ambitions” – Saul Maserow, Westbrooke SA Investment Team.

Avesh Padayachee, CEO of Fibon Group, conveyed his appreciation for the support received from the Westbrooke team emphasising Fibon’s commitment to becoming a leading provider of energy security to the corporate and industrial sectors, through decarbonisation, digitialisation, and decentralisation of power supply. ‘I look forward to collaborating closely with Westbrooke to realise Fibon’s vision, including the forthcoming 30MWp of Solar Projects in FY25”.
