Vinge has advised Lantmännen in connection with the divestment of Lantmännen Agrovärme to Solör Bioenergi.

Lantmännen Agrovärme produces, distributes, and sells district heating from 19 plants in the southern and central parts of Sweden to approximately 1100 customers. Lantmännen Agrovärme's strategy is to contribute to a circular economy. About 95 percent of the heat from Lantmännen Agrovärme comes from the combustion of locally produced biofuels, such as wood chips, energy forests, wood pellets and rest products from agriculture.

Vinges team consisted primarily of Christina Kokko, Peter Sundgren, Ellinor Wargenbrant and Elsie Nassar (M&A), Eva Fredriksson (Commercial Agreements), Sara Strandberg (Employment) and Julia Hagelberg (Project assistant).

The European Commission proposes a new Single Market Emergency Instrument

On 19 September 2022, the Commission adopted a proposal for a new regulation on an emergency instrument for the Single Market. Following the Covid-19 pandemic and other crises in the last years, the Union has seen internal entry restrictions, unpredictable rules and supply disruptions which, according to the Commission, have highlighted that there are structural shortcomings in the EU legal framework on the Single Market. The proposed emergency instrument aims to preserve the free movement of goods, services and persons and to ensure the availability of essential goods and services in the event of future emergencies.
