NEW YORK and TORONTO, April 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OMERS Infrastructure today announced that it has signed an agreement to sell its minority interest in a 596MW portfolio of four wind assets located in Illinois, Texas, Oregon and Minnesota (“Vento II”), at a purchase price of approximately US$196.5M1 to Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure.

“We have been invested in Vento since 2012. We are proud of what we have helped accomplish at this asset while working alongside world-class operators and our valued partners EDPR North America,” said Gisele Everett, Senior Managing Director, Americas for OMERS Infrastructure. “We wish Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure and EDPR North America every success in their work together. OMERS remains strongly interested in the renewables sector, and we continue to aggressively grow our presence in the sector through our existing, wholly-owned U.S.-based wind and solar platform and through the identification of additional opportunities to participate in renewables and energy transition investments globally,” she added.
