Niam Infrastructure‘s first fund invests in electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in Scandinavia and Northern Europe through Nima Energy
The Niam Infra Fund has made a 15% investment in Nima Energy to help Nima roll out EV charging stations. The Niam Infra Fund also has a right of first refusal to fund charging stations of up to SEK 500m (€47.6m) as part of the partnership with Nima Energy.
Together with strong partners and investors, Nima Energy is developing EV charging infrastructure for cars and commercial vehicles with a focus on large-scale charging stations. The company’s project portfolio consists of approximately 300 late-stage chargers and approximately 1,000 early-stage chargers.
Sverker Åkerblom, Head of Niam Infrastructure, said: “The transition to electric vehicles depends on significant infrastructure investments. Together with Nima Energy, we have the opportunity to accelerate this transition by introducing ultra-fast and accessible EV charging that meets the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s drivers.
“We are fully committed to offering accessible and fast charging and plan to invest up to SEK 500 million in this strategy over the next few years.”
Marcus Landelin, CEO of Nima Energy, said Niam Infra’s investment is a “significant milestone” and will allow Nima Energy to “accelerate our growth trajectory to become a leading developer of electric vehicle charging stations”.
“The joint platform with Niam enables Nima Energy to build charging stations in strategically and economically attractive locations for electric vehicle drivers,” said Landelin.
