Enel Green Power signs PPAs with Air Liquide and Sasol in South Africa

Enel Green Power (EGP), a subsidiary of the Italian energy firm Enel Group, has signed two power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Air Liquide Large Industries South Africa and Sasol South Africa to supply a total capacity of 220 MW of renewable power to Sasol’s Secunda site, where Air Liquide operates an oxygen production facility.

The site will start receiving renewable energy from EGP in 2025. The renewable energy will be supplied by EGP’s two wind farms in the Eastern Cape, which can generate more than 800 GWh of clean energy annually. The PPAs are the result of a joint request for proposal initiated by Air Liquide and Sasol in April 2021, under which they agreed to purchase a total capacity of 900 MW of renewable energy. The two wind projects will be implemented through special purpose vehicles dedicated to each project with a local majority of participation.  EGP is operating in the region through its wholly owned subsidiary, Enel Green Power South Africa, which currently has more than 1.2 GW of renewable energy capacity in South Africa. The agreements are part of tailored renewable energy solutions that EGP has offered to commercial and industrial customers to help them achieve their sustainability goals.
