Vattenfall has signed its first power contract for wind farm Hollandse Kust Zuid.
Air Liquide will purchase 100GWh of fossil-free electricity per year from the wind farm located off the Dutch coast.
The 15-year contract will start in 2023 when the wind farm is operational. Air Liquide will use the electricity to power its factories in the Netherlands.
Martijn Hagens, CEO Vattenfall Netherlands: “We are delighted that Air Liquide, which has ambitious sustainability targets, will purchase fossil-free electricity from Vattenfall. Long-term contracts like these provide us with financial security and enable us to keep investing in wind and solar farms, a cornerstone in our ambition to enable fossil free living within one generation. The Netherlands is turning to a fossil-free future and we want to make that a reality for our customers.”
