Wind Energy – PPA
French gas company Air Liquide has signed its biggest long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to date with approximately 115 MW of new offshore wind electricity, purchased to Vattenfall in the Netherlands.
This PPA comes in addition to a previous agreement announced with Vattenfall in March 2021, expanding the long-term partnership between the two groups.
It reaffirms Air Liquide’s commitment to lead the way in decarbonizing the European industry while lowering its own carbon footprint, in line with its Sustainable Development objectives.
Air Liquide has signed a 15 year contract starting in 2025 with Vattenfall, one of Europe’s leading producers and retailers of electricity.
The renewable energy will be generated by the Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) subsidy-free, worldscale offshore wind farm under construction by Vattenfall off the Dutch coast.
Over the contract duration, this will avoid the emission of up to 3.5 million tonnes of CO2, which is comparable to the emissions generated by over 150,000 Dutch households.
