Setterwalls assisted Arlandastad Group in the acquisition of Stockholm Skavsta Airport
Arlandastad Group acquires 90.1% of the shares in Stockholm Skavsta Flygplats AB from VINCI Airports and will develop an adjacent area of 4.84 million sq.m. in a joint venture with the Municipality of Nyköping.
A business park and a logistics hub will be established in the area close to the airport. In addition, Arlandastad and VINCI have signed an agreement enabling SunMind, a VINCI Concessions subsidiary, to develop, finance, build and maintain a solar farm on the airport site.
