Eolos Floating Lidar Solutions and its shareholders has sold a majority stake to Nazca Capital

Paris – CFI is pleased to announce that it acted as exclusive financial advisor to Eolos Floating Lidar Solutions and its shareholders in the sale of a majority stake to Nazca Capital through both a 12 million Euros capital raising to accelerate Eolos’ growth and a repurchase of shares.

Created in 2014, Eolos is a world leader in the collection and analysis of high-quality data for offshore wind market farms. Eolos solutions enable data-driven decisions to reduce offshore wind energy costs.

Eolos uses proprietary floating Lidar platforms (FLS200) integrating cutting-edge sensors to measure wind, ocean and environmental characteristics. The FLS200 platforms have been operated in very harsh environments: typhoons, extreme waves and cold temperatures in Europe, the US and South Korea.

In 2022, after 6 years of work to meet the many certification criteria for offshore wind measurement, the company obtained the “Carbon Trust Stage 3” for its FLS200 buoy.

Main clients of the company are world-class offshore wind farm investors and developers (7 of the 10 largest offshore wind farm developers already trust Eolos) and government agencies.

This fundraising will allow Eolos to accelerate its growth by tripling its fleet of floating LIDAR platforms and accelerating the development of new offers to support its customers throughout the life of an offshore wind power plant. This will allow the company to meet the high demand from the sector.

The company will continue to be led by Rajai Aghabi, CEO and founder of the company, who has over 15 years of industry experience. He also retains his position as shareholder.

This transaction closed on 5 December 2022.
