A fund managed by DIF Capital Partners is buying a US wind farm project from an infrastructure fund managed by BlackRock for an undisclosed sum.

The DIF Infrastructure VI fund has agreed to acquire Kingfisher Wind, a 298MW operating wind project located in Oklahoma.

The project, situated across approximately 19,000 acres of land, has been operating since 2016 and benefits from contracted cash flows and selling electricity into the Southwest Power Pool.

Gijs Voskuyl, partner and head of infrastructure at DIF Capital Partners, said: “DIF is pleased to increase our operating onshore wind holdings. We also see interesting synergies with earlier investments such as our DIF Infrastructure IV investment in the neighbouring Canadian Hills project.

“Clean energy is a key focus for DIF, and we look forward to continuing to provide clean reliable power to the Project’s customers and support the North American clean energy transition. The investment underlines DIF’s strong position in and commitment to the renewable energy market globally.”
