Air Liquide (AL) and Sasol recently have signed new Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) with the global wind and solar company Mainstream Renewable Power, for the long-term supply of a capacity of 97.5 ㎿ of renewable power to Sasol’s Secunda site, in South Africa, where AL operates the biggest oxygen production site in the world.
This is the third set of PPAs signed by AL and Sasol. Together, these PPAs represent a total renewable power capacity of around 580 ㎿. For AL, these contracts will contribute to the targeted reduction by 30% to 40% of the CO2 emissions associated with oxygen production in Secunda by 2031.
Within the framework of these PPAs with AL and Sasol, Mainstream will create a local company with strong socio-economic development commitments which will build a solar farm located in the Free State province. This renewable energy production facility is scheduled to be operational in 2025.
AL operates a total of 17 ASUs in Secunda, with a total capacity of 47,000 tonnes/day of oxygen.
