Anil Vijayachandran – ACWA Power

Anil Vijayachandran is part of the Acquisitions & Project Finance team at ACWA Power, and has extensive experience in project and leveraged finance, M&A support, bid financial advisory and fund-raising for infrastructure projects in the Middle-East and Africa. He has worked on conventional power (coal, oil and gas fired), water, renewable (solar, wind, hydro) as well as airports and hotel concessions. In his previous role, he has also advised governments, state-owned entities and private developers on complex emerging and frontier market infrastructure project development, structuring and financing.

ACWA Power was formed in 2004 due to the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia decided to increase the role the private sector played in the Saudi economy by opening up the production of electricity and desalinated water to the private sector to own and operate.

ACWA Holding (representing the Abunayyan Trading Company and Abdulkadir Al Muhaidib & Sons Co.) along with the MADA Group for Industrial and Commercial Development (MADA Group) formed a joint venture under the name of ACWA Power Projects in 2004. The latter was the forerunner of present day ACWA Power, which was subsequently founded in 2008.
