“We are pleased with signing yet another contract with Hafslund E-CO Vannkraft AS, enabling us to secure stable long-term hydropower supply to our operations,” says Arvid Moss, Executive Vice President Energy in Hydro.
Hydro and Hafslund E-CO Vannkraft AS already have a good cooperation and signed a contract for an aggregated supply of 1.18 TWh in June.
Since 2014, Hydro has signed 16 long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs), all of which based on hydropower or wind power. Together with Hydro’s 10 TWh captive hydropower production in Norway, the long-term PPAs will be used in Hydro’s aluminium production in Norway in the coming decades.
Hydro’s 1.15 million tonnes per year primary aluminium production capacity in Norway is 100% supplied with renewable power. World-wide, Hydro’s corresponding renewable power share is above 70%.
The contract with Hafslund E-CO Vannkraft AS spans from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2027, with delivery to price area NO5.
