INEOS signs renewable power deal with Eneco in Belgium
INEOS has agreed a long-term Power Purchase Agreement for renewable offshore wind power in Belgium with sustainable energy producer Eneco. Under the terms of the ten-year deal, which begins in 2022, INEOS will purchase 65,5-Megawatt (250 GWh per annum) of off-shore wind power from Eneco, produced at the SeaMade offshore wind park in the Belgian North Sea.
This significant deal will take ca. 13.5% of SeaMade’s renewable electricity. It will reduce the carbon footprint of INEOS by a further 940,000 tonnes of CO2 over the length of the contract, which is the equivalent of taking 70,000 cars off the road each year.
The renewable electricity from this agreement will be used to support INEOS Olefins and Polymers, INOVYN and Styrolution businesses, allowing the latter to switch its German assets to green power from January 2022 onwards.
This is the third renewable power deal agreed by INEOS as part of our road map to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from across its operations, as the company continues to supply essential products that people increasingly need across medical, food, transport and construction.
Combined with previously announced deals, the agreement with Eneco increases the INEOS commitment to Belgian offshore renewable wind to 205 MW (~750 GWh per annum). Together this reduces the carbon footprint of its operations by nearly 3 million tons of CO2 over the life of the contracts; the equivalent of taking more than 230,000 cars off the road, in total, each year.
