Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has selected Exus Management Partners as asset manager for its 477-MW DC Fighting Jays solar project in Texas.
Under the contract, Exus will be in charge of the asset management and financial services at the photovoltaic (PV) complex, Danish fund manager CIP said on Monday. The renewables-focused investor and asset manager will also provide custom solar optimisation and reporting tools.
To be located in Fort Bend County, the Fighting Jays solar farm will be installed near the Houston metro area, within the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market. Its construction is slated to begin in the second half of this year, with commissioning to be held by the summer of 2022. Its output is expected to be enough to supply around 62,000 homes per year.
CIP bought the Fighting Jays project from Plus Renewable Technologies Ltd and Avondale Solar LLC in the summer of 2020. In July, the Danish company appointed Exus as asset manager for its 690-MW Travers solar project in Alberta, Canada.
