Vinge has advised EQT Infrastructure II in connection with entering into an agreement to divest the Hector Rail group to Ancala’s European Infrastructure Fund II.

Hector Rail also operates a growing domestic platform in Germany, the largest rail freight market in Europe, from which it focuses on attractive niche segments, such as energy and intermodal flows.

Vinge´s team consisted of Daniel Rosvall, Karl Klackenberg, Milad Kamali and Olivia Belding (M&A), Mikael Ståhl and Axel Jansson (Banking and Finance), Mathilda Persson (Commercial Agreements) and Kristoffer Sällfors (Regulatory).
