Rabobank’s Project Finance team has a global presence and a strong focus on advising on, structuring, arranging and underwriting (complex) project finance transactions. Our focus is on the renewable energy and infrastructure sectors, as well as on Rabobank’s corporate and Food & Agri clients.
We offer innovative financing structures that result in tailor-made solutions by offering a wide range of products that include FX and IRS hedging, cash management services, LCs and advisory services, in addition to senior and mezzanine financing. Through intensive co-operation with our strong markets team we are able to include institutional (or other third party) funds, enabling us to provide large underwrites and longer tenors.
Rabobank was one of the first financiers in the offshore wind sector and has built up a strong portfolio in this sector, giving us a distinctive advantage in terms of knowledge and experience. We are a leading bank in this sector and we use our expertise and experience to the advantage of our clients and new projects. In addition to offshore wind projects, the project finance division is globally engaged in onshore wind, solar PV, Concentrated Solar Power, biochemical and biomass projects. In the Netherlands, Rabobank has a large portfolio of onshore wind projects and is a front runner in the financing of geothermal projects for our clients.
Thanks to the fact that Rabobank has long been one of the most experienced service providers to the various food & agribusiness sectors around the world, Project Finance can offer tailored financial solutions to this sector by making use of the bank’s unique knowledge. Examples include biomass waste-to-energy, agri-to-chemicals and F&A infrastructure and primary processing.
In the infrastructure sector, which includes roads and buildings (PPP structures), oil & gas storage, telecom, Floating Production, Storage and Offloading Vessels (FPSOs), Rabobank generates added value for our clients by combining its expertise across the entire spectrum of financing and in close co-operation with other disciplines within the bank. This is what enables us to provide our clients with services of the highest quality.
