November 17 (Renewables Now) - Denmark’s Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) plans to participate in a 1.8-GW offshore wind power and green hydrogen project in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Norte.

On Friday, the state government and CIP's representatives of CIP signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to execute the Alisios Potiguares offshore wind and green hydrogen project, the government announced.

Details about what role would each party have in the project were scarce.

According to the Rio Grande do Norte government, the state currently generates 6.1 GW of wind power, while its consumption is 1.5 GW, which makes the state a clean energy exporter.

The state's potential for offshore wind power is estimated at 140 MW, the government adds.
