Combining years of competencies built up by Wpd Offshore with the massive financial power of Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) will help newly rebranded Skyborn Renewables to “truly take a new growth path” and become “bigger and more successful”, the developer’s chief executive Achim Berge told Recharge.

GIP earlier this month closed the acquisition of 100% of developer Wpd’s offshore wind business that was first announced in May and rebranded the unit. The infrastructure investor has kept the former Wpd Offshore head as CEO of Skyborn, which has a pipeline of more than 30GW (gross) of wind projects.
