Under the terms of this 10-year PPA, Air Products will source the majority of its current merchant business energy consumption for sliquid nitrogen and oxygen productions in The Netherlands from a reliable and renewable energy source. The renewable electricity will be generated at the sVlagtwedde Solar PV farms in the northeast of The Netherlands. The signed PPA will enable Air Products to reduce emissions equivalent to the carbon footprint of approximately 45,000 households over the duration of the contract.

This commitment represents an important milestone in the company's ongoing efforts to reduce its carbon footprint in The Netherlands and contribute to a more sustainable future. Last year, the company announced its plans to sbuild Europe's largest blue hydrogen facility based in the Port of Rotterdams. This was preceded by the announcements of Air Products' plans for a renewable energy import terminal, and the sfirst Rotterdam green hydrogen truck refuelling stations. The 10-year contract reflects Air Products' long-term vision to work to accelerate the energy transition and continue to work to generate a cleaner future.

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

sEneco B2B Director Dick Velingss added, "To tackle the challenge of climate neutrality, we need significantly more sustainably generated power. With this agreement, Air Products commits to using greener energy. This allows Air Products to become more sustainable and help their customers in many sectors do so as well. We're excited to work with Air Products in this effort."
