Ampyr Solar Europe and Multiplex have signed a solar power purchase agreement (PPA) for a project in Norfolk in the east of England, UK. The PPA is for the Northwold Solar PV Generating Station. The solar plant is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2024 and will provide renewable energy to Multiplex’s construction sites and offices across the UK.
Ampyr will build and operate the solar farm which is expected to produce more than 9000 megawatt hours of energy annually. Steve Mason, Chief Commercial Officer at Ampyr Solar Europe, said: “Ampyr Solar Europe continues its journey towards becoming a leading European IPP with world-class assets in the UK, as well as in Germany and the Netherlands. We are proud to be able to offer innovative PPA products, providing offtakers with the price and supply certainty they require to meet their sustainability goals.” Following Multiplex’s commitment to a PPA in 2021, this deal will allow Multiplex to procure renewable electricity from the Northwold, meaning it will be considered additional. This ensures that Multiplex’s procurement of renewable energy directly leads to verifiable emission reduction and more renewable energy production, supporting the UK’s national decarbonisation goals.
