Leading renewable energy companies and a major player in global energy trading RWE and world's largest supplier of lithography systems for the semiconductor industry ASML, the, have signed a Power Purchase Agreement. Under the terms of the 10-year agreement, which is already underway, ASML will be provided with more than 250 gigawatt hours of green electricity per year from RWE.
The power will be delivered from a portfolio of various renewable energy sources across different technologies: two new RWE onshore wind farms and one solar plant in the Netherlands, as well as an offshore wind farm in Belgium. The two RWE windfarms Oostpolderdijk and Westereems 3, with a total installed capacity of 16.5 megawatts, are located near Eemshaven and will both be commissioned during 2021. The offshore wind farm Northwester 2 off the coast of Zeebrugge is operated by Belgian company Parkwind and the solar plant, owned by a company in which RWE holds a minority share, is situated near Borssele.
The RWE wind farms were developed, built and are operated by the company’s subsidiary RWE Renewables. The procurement of green electricity from third parties and its supply to ASML is handled by RWE Supply & Trading. This set-up allows RWE to offer a variety of self-built and third-party-operated renewable assets with maximum flexibility to meet customers’ specific needs.
