Renewable project developer Tri Global Energy LLC sold the 800-MW Woodford wind energy project in Illinois to Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners K/S for undisclosed terms.
The project is divided into two phases, each with a capacity of up to 400 MW, and will connect to the PJM Interconnection system.
Construction of the first phase is expected to start in January 2021, with a target commercial operation date scheduled for the end of the same year.
Altius Renewable Royalties Corp. subsidiary Great Bay Renewables will provide financing support for Tri Global to complete project development through the start of construction.
The project marks the third partnership between Tri Global and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners. The two companies have built more than 500 MW of wind energy projects in total, according to a news release.
