Selected Track Record
Lyon Group has developed cutting edge infrastructure projects in the energy, water and agriculture sectors.
Prior to commencing development of its Australian large-scale integrated solar and battery storage projects, the Lyon team developed and financed 75 MW of solar PV projects, almost 300 MW of wind projects and over 5000 MW of thermal generation projects.
CAPITAL RAISING AND STRUCTURING
The Lyon team has arranged debt and equity financing and structured over $10 billion worth of energy and infrastructure projects.
The Lyon team has had extensive experience in the water sector, particularly in relation to its reform, economics, project assessment, development, and asset acquisition and management. We have utilised this experience to establish a Water Infrastructure Fund to hold assets acquired by Lyon and to allow investors to take advantage of investing in this class of assets.
AGRICULTURE AND FOOD SECTOR
Lyon is currently developing, in conjunction with a number of international partners, a major integrated multi-crop agriculture production/manufacturing cluster which utilises renewable energy and recycled water. The project makes use of underutilised agricultural land to significantly enhance production capacity from the land, uses only renewable energy for the advanced manufacturing of the produce for export, and water treatment and recycling.
