CIP to sell minority stake in Taiwanese offshore wind cluster

Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners has agreed to sell a 25% stake in its 595MW Changfang and Xidao wind farms off Taiwan.

Thai power company Global Power Synergy Public Company (GPSC) will acquire the stake through its wholly owned subsidiary, Global Renewable Synergy Company (GRSC).

Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners will remain the majority owner through its II K/S (CI-II) and III K/S (CI-III) funds. It will continue to lead development of the wind farm, which is due to start commercial operations in the first quarter of 2024.

Closing of the transaction is subject to certain conditions, including approval from several Tawianese government departments.

CIP partner Michael Hannibal said the sale of the minority stake recognises the value the investors had added to the project during the development phase and initial construction phase.
