Air Liquide and Sasol sign two PPAs with Enel Green Power


Air Liquide and Sasol have signed two Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) with Enel Green Power for the long-term supply of a total capacity of 220MW of renewable power to Sasol’s Secunda site, in South Africa, where Air Liquide operates the biggest oxygen production site globally.

The PPAs are the first results of the Request for Proposal (RFP) process launched jointly by Air Liquide and Sasol in April 2021, for the procurement of a total capacity of 900MW of renewable energy. They will significantly contribute to the decarbonisation of the Secunda site, and in particular to the targeted reduction by 30-40% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with the oxygen production by 2031.

Within the framework of these agreements, two local majority owned wind projects will be created by Enel Green Power, the Enel Group subsidiary dedicated to the development and management of power generated from renewable resources worldwide. The 220MW wind powered renewable electricity production capacity is scheduled to be operational in 2025, subject to regulatory and financial approvals.
