As part of the agreement, the Netherlands-based company will purchase the total electricity from the 487 MW offshore wind project after it is commissioned in 2020. Eneco has signed a long-term power purchase agreement (ECA) with the chemical company Borealis as a decruitor for the 235 MW Mermaid wind farm off the coast of Belgium. Borealis, an Austrian chemical company, has signed a long-term power purchase agreement (ECA) with Eneco to source renewable electricity from the 235 MW Mermaid offshore wind farm in Belgian Waters of the North Sea. As soon as it is fully operational by the end of this year, it will be able to produce enough clean energy to power 230,000 homes a year. These turbines will produce 780 GWh of green electricity per year from 2023, the total electricity consumption of some 275,000 households. That`s enough to provide green electricity to the entire city of Almere every year, Eneco says. As part of the deal, Borealis will purchase more than 1,000 GWh of wind over the next ten years and electricity supply is expected to take place in January of the next decade. The latest ECA between Google and Eneco sees the tech giant transform into another energy source: Google`s latest data center in Eemshaven runs on all the electricity from a new Delfzijl solar farm and is proof of how wind and solar are changing the way companies run their businesses.
