Science company Solvay has signed a 10-year PPA with Statkraft to purchase electricity produced by the Pajuperankangas wind farm.
The Group’s Voikkaa in Finland will be able to use 100% wind-generated electricity. This agreement will help to reduce the carbon footprint of the site’s hydrogen peroxide production and contribute to Solvay’s sustainability goals.
Marco Giannuzzi, Solvay Peroxides EMEA business director, stated that Solvay One Planet and Solvay Peroxides have the same sustainability goals as the Group. “Solvay Peroxides aims to achieve carbon neutrality1 worldwide by 2040 in line with their sustainability roadmap.” “Through the PPA, we are happy to make a significant contribution to reducing the environmental impacts of our Finnish site and responding to the needs for the planet as well as our customers.”
Fredrik Akerlund is Senior originator and office manager at Statkraft’s Espoo office. “We want to be the leading partner for industry customers in the Nordic area and believe that our solutions should meet their needs.”
According to the 10-year Utility PPA, Solvay signed with Statkraft, Statkraft will supply electricity from the Pajuperankangas Wind Farm in Finland. Statkraft has recently signed a 10-year power buy agreement with ABO Wind. The wind farm is currently in construction and will include 14 turbines. They are expected to be connected to ABO Wind’s grid in autumn 2023. The turbines will have an installed combined capacity of approximately 86.8 megawatts. They are capable of producing enough electricity for 14,000 Finnish electricity-heated households.
