January 25 (Renewables Now) - Enel Green Power (EGP) announced on Tuesday it will supply 220 MW of wind power to Air Liquide Large Industries South Africa and Sasol South Africa from projects scheduled to go online in 2025.
Under two long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs), the renewables arm of Italian electric utility Enel SpA (BIT:ENEL) will deliver the clean electricity to Sasol’s Secunda site through wheeling. Secunda is where Air Liquide operates the world's largest oxygen production factory.
EGP said the deal is subject to regulatory and financial approvals.
The two wind projects related to the PPAs are located in the Eastern Cape and have an expected annual generation of over 800 GWh.
The wind schemes will be implemented through special purpose vehicles (SPVs) dedicated to each wind park.
EGP currently has a portfolio of more than 1.2 GW of renewable energy in South Africa.
