31 July 2014 - Norwegian power producer Statkraft AS said today it had inked a deal to sell a 49% interest in a portfolio of onshore wind farms in the UK to Gingko Tree Investment Ltd for an undisclosed sum.
Statkraft noted it will hold a 51% stake in a new firm, called Wind UK Invest Ltd, that will hold three UK wind parks with a combined gross installed capacity of 142MW. In turn, Gingko Tree will get a 49% stake in the holding company.
