Mytilineos Inks Groundbreaking Solar Power Deals In Ireland

Mytilineos has signed two long-term Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) to supply renewable energy from two solar farms in Ireland to Keppel DC REIT’s two Dublin facilities. 

Strategically located in Gorey, Wexford, and Goresbridge, Kilkenny, these solar farms boast a combined capacity of 14.28MW. Positioned in some of Ireland’s highest irradiation regions, they will generate approximately 13.6GWh of renewable electricity annually, reducing CO2 emissions by over 6,250 tonnes each year.  Gary Watson, Keppel DC REIT’s Country Manager for Ireland, highlighted their commitment to achieving Net Zero operations by 2030, aligning with Ireland’s Climate Action Plan and the Climate Neutral Data Centre Pact. “Strengthening our commitment to climate change, we can better support our clients’ sustainability goals,” Watson said.  With these new PPAs, 92% of the power requirements at Keppel DC REIT’s Dublin data centres will be met by Irish renewable sources, with Mytilineos delivering about 11% of the total power needs upon the solar farms’ completion in summer 2024. 

Developed by Mytilineos’ M Renewables, which handled the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of the solar parks, this marks Mytilineos’ first PPA in Ireland, strengthening its presence in the local renewable energy market. Nikos Papapetrou, Executive Director at M Renewables Mytilineos, expressed pride in partnering with Keppel, recognizing the critical need for green solutions in the energy market. Mytilineos has been active in Europe and the UK for a decade, and Ireland is a strategic focus for their solar, storage, and hydrogen businesses. The global portfolio of M Renewables, which is expanding dynamically across five continents, now totals approximately 10GW, including projects in various development stages.
