Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has taken a final investment decision on the 300-megawatt Hatalageri onshore wind project in India
Located in the Indian state of Karnataka, Hatalageri is the first project to be developed by the partnership consisting of CIP and Indian developer Viviid Renewables. The two companies entered into a framework agreement in January 2023 to develop at least 1.8 gigawatts of renewable-energy projects in India.
Alongside the final investment decision, CIP signed equipment orders for the full project capacity. Viviid, which holds a minority ownership position in the project, will provide balance-of-plant works and services. Siddharth Mehra, founder of Viviid Renewables, said the company will leverage its expertise in wind-farm development, including balance of plant equipment supplies and services.
Construction of the Hatalageri wind farm is expected to reach completion by the end of 2025.
