Denmark's Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, CIP, has launched installation of two of its US solar projects, announces CIP in a press release.
The Misae and Sage projects, which boast total capacity of 298 MW and are part of the Copenhagen Infrastructure II fund.
"Start of construction on Misae and Sage - the first large scale solar projects in Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners’ renewable energy portfolio - represents an important milestone and demonstrates CIP’s capacity to originate, develop, structure and finance utility-scale energy infrastructure projects across multiple asset classes and technologies," says Christian Skakkebæk, Senior Partner in CIP in the press release.
Yesterday, CIP launched the installation of its Misae solar farm, which has a 240 MWac capacity. The project was acquired earlier this year and sits six miles east of Childress in Texas. Solar panels have been delivered by Jinko, while M.A. Mortenson stands for the installation and subsequent maintenance.
The farm is expected to be ready for operations in Q4 2019.
Sage is located in Rich County in the US state of Utah. It was purchased by a local developer in April 2017 as part of a larger portfolio and it is expected that the 58 MWac solar farm will be in operation in August 2019.
In the press release CIP reveals that its US solar portfolio amounts to approximately 1.1 GWac.
