The €200 million investment will be made through the Lords LB Special Fund V. The fund’s initial size will be €20 million up to a maximum of €40 million.

Active over eight years, more than €200 million will be invested in the fund, to be spent over several phases. Investors from Sweden, Denmark and the Baltic states are participating in the project
