Cindrigo signs Framework Agreement with geothermal industrial giant Kaishan

Cindrigo Holdings Limited('Cindrigo' or the 'Company')

     Cindrigo (LSE:CINH) is pleased to announce that, as part of its ongoing expansion strategy, it has signed a Framework Agreement with Kaishan Renewable Energy Development PTE LTD, a Singapore-registered company and member of the Kaishan Group (“Kaishan”) (collectively the “Parties”) to develop, finance, build and operate geothermal power plants (the “Framework Agreement”).

     The first project targeted under the Framework Agreement is the 20 MW project led by Cindrigo development companies on the Slatina 3 geothermal license in Croatia. Kaishan is the preferred turnkey Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor and Operations and Maintenance (O&M) contractor. Kaishan may also facilitate 70% of this project’s finance required subject to financial review.

     Under the Framework Agreement, Kaishan has been granted Preferred Partner and Vendor status for each of Cindrigo’s Projects in Europe.  Each Project will be managed by separate Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) and may be subject to separate agreements within the intent of the Framework Agreement. Services provided by Kaishan may include full “turnkey” EPC or parts thereof, including design and engineering, equipment supply and financing.

     The strategic long-term cooperation approach adopted demonstrates an efficient, cost-effective and best-practice approach to developing the geothermal sectors where Cindrigo operates, first in Croatia.  This will extend to Cindrigo projects in priority jurisdictions in Europe and globally as the foundation of a deliberate rollout strategy for Cindrigo’s target portfolio of 1000 MW.

     The Parties are now exchanging technical data on Slatina 3 and are committed to the aim of reaching Final EPC Agreement for Slatina 3 within Q2 2023.

     Cao Kejian, Chairman of the Kaishan Group, said: “We see Cindrigo as a strong partner in the expansion of geothermal in new markets, initially in Croatia and the Pannonian Basin with other markets to follow. We strongly believe that together we can provide mutual support  and strengthen expansion in a very attractive market”

     Lars Guldstrand, CEO of Cindrigo, said: “We are excited to be working with the Kaishan Group, a world-leader in geothermal. Kaishan has a long history of supplying equipment in Europe, the United States and globally and also operates a large portfolio of its own power plants. Like Cindrigo, Kaishan recognises the business opportunity that unlocking the huge potential of geothermal power in Europe offers.
