Infranode’s Investment in Yilport Oslo

Vinge has advised Yildirim Group on the deal.

Nordic infrastructure company Infranode invested in Yilport Oslo, the operator of Norway’s largest container port. Through the agreement, Infranode proves its strategy of making long-term and responsible investments in Nordic infrastructure. Yilport Oslo plays an important role in Oslo Port’s ambition to become the first fossil-free port in the world.

Through the agreement, Infranode acquires a co-ownership stake from the owner Yilport Holding. The container port is Norway’s largest, serving 80 percent of the Oslo region and over half of the total population in the country. Yilport Oslo currently holds a concession of operating the port until 2035 with a possibility to prolong for another 10 years.

The port is already today a frontrunner in the transition to increased sustainability. A substantial part of the operations is electrified, and the aim is to support the transformation to make the port the first fossil free port in the world. The port has seen a substantial increase in volumes since 2015 and now handles 250 000 TEU (one TEU, Twenty-foot equivalent unit, is equal to a container of 20 feet, or around 6 meters).

The collaboration among Infranode and Yilport was initiated in 2019, when Yilport Gavle (Sweden) realized its capacity enlargement with an equity contribution by Infranode. This collaboration created a long-term partnership, showcasing the confidence and harmony between the parties. Now, I am delighted to announce that our collaboration with Infranode has been taken to the next level with the investment by Infranode in Yilport Oslo.

Infranode is a long-term infrastructure investor with a specific focus on the Nordic countries. Infranode covers the main infrastructure sectors of energy & utilities, renewables, digital infrastructure, transportation, and social infrastructure. Infranode has offices in Stockholm, Helsinki and Oslo and a strong team of infrastructure investment professionals with extensive local and international experience.
