Eneco has concluded a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) for the SeaMade offshore wind project in Belgium.
Under the agreement, the Netherlands-headquartered company will purchase all the power generated by the 487MW offshore wind project once commissioned in 2020.
Besides Eneco Wind Belgium (12.5%), other project shareholders include Engie Electrabel (17.5%) and the Otary consortium (70%).
“We aim for growth with respect to customers, sustainable energy and smart energy services. These areas are strongly interrelated,” said Kees-Jan Rameau, Chief Strategic Growth Officer at Eneco.
“For example, as a result of the acquisition of ENI last year, we welcomed a large number of new customers in Belgium. I am proud that, in time, this long-term agreement will allow us to supply them with green power that is completely generated locally.”
Construction is expected to start in the summer of 2019.
