Denmark’s Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has finalised a deal with Indian developer Viviid Renewables to advance an 1.8GW “onshore wind-focused” portfolio of projects in the latter’s home market.

The “long-term partnership” framework agreement, set up via CIP’s New Markets Fund 1, will kick off with development of two onshore wind arrays with a combined capacity of 500MW, “with additional projects expected to be developed and constructed through successor [CIP] funds”.
