Main Vehicle For
International expansion of Sev.en started in 2019 with the first major step being a purchase of the 50% interest in InterGen N.V. with assets in the UK and Australia.
In 2020, we continued with the acquisitions of metallurgical coal producers in the United States including Blackhawk Mining, LLC and Corsa Coal Corp.
In 2021, the group acquired several portfolios of mining rights and land in the United States under the umbrella of Golden Eagle Land Company, which triggered a separate investment category focus.
Over the last three years these international acquisitions were consolidated under the newly formed Sev.en Global Investments group with the objective to further strengthen the investment focus and widen the acquisition scope to other sectors and regions.
At the end of 2021, Sev.en Global Investments became the family office main vehicle for international Investments and business development.
In 2022, Sev.en Global Investments strengthened its energy generation business in Australia by acquiring a 100% share of Delta Electricity Pty Ltd which owns and operates the coal-fired Vales Point Power Station and the Chain Valley Colliery mining complex in New South Wales.
In addition, Sev.en GI has expanded its sector presence to minerals by acquiring a 100% share in Australia Salt Lake Potash Pty Ltd, the operating subsidiary of Salt Lake Potash (SO4), developing the flagship Lake Way potash project in Western Australia with planned production of over 200,000 tons per annum of potassium-based fertilizers.
In 2023, we have successfully divested our investment in InterGen UK assets.
