- Aquila European Renewables Income Fund said it had acquired a 25.9% stake in Midfjellet Vindkraft AS, a Norwegian wind farm.

In aggregate c. 40% of the proceeds raised from the IPO are invested and we are looking forward to advising the Company on further investments in the near future,' said Christine Brockwell, Senior Investment Manager at Aquila Capital, the investment adviser.
