Carmine Capital opens a maritime structured-finance desk dedicated to the financial advisory of shipowners and announces its first maritime cross-border deal for more than €110 million.
The Paris office of Carmine Capital announces the creation of a new desk dedicated to maritime structured finance. Driven by a stable legislative framework and a new incentive mechanism aimed at decarbonizing the propulsion of vessels, France confirms its attractiveness in terms of structured financing for shipowners.
Emmanuel Longin joins forces with Carmine Capital and takes over the management of this activity which he has developed over the past fifteen years :
“The development of ecological propulsion, whether based on methanol or liquefied natural gas combined with a battery pack, is a very strong growth challenge for the entire maritime industry.
Developing this activity within Carmine Capital allows us to respond optimally to the growing demand for support from shipowners wishing to benefit from recent measures.
We will benefit from Germain Simoneau’s extensive experience in asset financing to offer our clients the values that have made Carmine Capital successful: independence, transparency, proximity and efficiency.”
Carmine Capital announces the closing of its first maritime deal with the implementation at the end of 2022 of a tailor-made financing for two support vessels for the offshore wind (CSOVs).
The transaction amounts to more than €110 million.
Emmanuel is accompanied by Gérard Forcinal as senior advisor.
