Amazon, Eneco and Shell agree offshore energy supply

Amazon and Dutch energy provider Eneco have reached agreement for renewable wind energy generated by the Dutch subsidy-free offshore wind farm Hollandse Kust Noord.

The agreement relates to 130MW of installed renewable capacity and builds towards Amazon’s goal of powering its operations with fully renewable energy by 2025.

“Amazon has a clear climate ambition and we are proud to contribute to this goal by delivering renewable energy generated by the offshore wind farm Hollandse Kust Noord. This collaboration enables us to invest in more renewable energy projects and, thus, accelerate the energy transition,” Kees-Jan Rameau, chief strategic growth officer at Eneco.

The renewable energy will be generated by Hollandse Kust Noord, a wind farm that is being constructed 18.5km off the Dutch coast. CrossWind, a joint venture between Shell and Eneco, is currently working on installing the 69 wind turbines with a total capacity of 759MW. The wind farm is scheduled to become operational in 2023 and will generate at least 3.3TWh per year.
