The PPA will be part of Hydro's Norwegian power portfolio, which consists of captive power production of 9.4 TWh per year and a long-term contract portfolio of around 10 TWh.
Access to renewable power and modetechnology enables Hydro to produce aluminium in Norway with a carbon footprint of about 75 percent less than the global average. Long-term power purchase agreements at competitive prices are crucial for Hydro to continue to lead the way in low-carbon aluminium globally.
The contract with Alpiq will be delivered to the NO3 price area.
