October 21 (Renewables Now) - Denmark’s Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners P/S has kicked off commercial operations at its 162-MW Bearkat II wind park in Texas.

The milestone was announced on Tuesday by Tri Global Energy, which originated the project back in 2012 and was responsible for its development. CIP acquired the scheme in 2016. 

Located in Texas’ Glasscock County, the Bearkat II plant was installed on almost 30,000 acres (12,140 ha) of leased land. It was built as an expansion of the 197-MW Bearkat phase I wind farm, which has been generating electricity since 2017.

"We congratulate the team at CIP on completing funding the second phase of the Bearkat wind project and achieving commercial operation, which helps Texas remain the number one wind producing state in the nation," said John Billingsley, chairman and CEO of Tri Global Energy.

CIP and Tri Global Energy have partnered in other wind projects across the US, among which is the already operational 148-MW Blue Cloud wind farm in Texas.
