Air Products Signs Solar PPA

Air Products, an industrial gasses company, announced the signing of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for renewable energy.

The agreement was signed with Eneco. Under the terms of this 10-year PPA, Air Products will source the majority of its current merchant business energy consumption for liquid nitrogen and oxygen production in The Netherlands from a reliable and renewable energy source. 

The renewable electricity will be generated at the Vlagtwedde Solar PV farm in the northeast of The Netherlands. 

In 2023, the company announced its plans to build Europe's largest blue hydrogen facility based in the Port of Rotterdam. This was preceded by the announcements of Air Products' plans for a renewable energy import terminal and the first Rotterdam green hydrogen truck refueling station. 

"This 10-year PPA is a significant milestone in our journey towards sustainability," said Harco van den Berg, Air Products' Business Manager Benelux, in a statement. "We are excited to partner with Eneco, and we believe this collaboration will contribute to our goals of decarbonizing the industrial gasses sector."
