Lincoln Clean Energy (LCE), a subsidiary of Ørsted and a leading developer of U.S. renewables, announced it has acquired a 103 MW construction ready wind project in Butte County, South Dakota.
LCE purchased the project from Pattern Energy Group, an independent renewable energy company with wind and solar assets in the United States, Canada, and Japan. The project is expected to come online in the fourth quarter of 2020.
“The acquisition of this South Dakota wind farm adds to our growing portfolio of onshore wind assets and continues to broaden the geographic footprint of our asset base into the important SPP market,” commented Lincoln Clean Energy CEO Declan Flanagan.
Ørsted develops, constructs and operates offshore wind farms, bioenergy plants and innovative waste-to-energy solutions and provides smart energy products to its customers. Headquartered in Denmark, Ørsted employs 6,200 people.
