Japan-based Mitsubishi Corp has signed an agreement with Amazon.com Inc. facilities in Europe on Monday with its Royal Dutch Shell and Dutch unit Eneco.
According to the deal, an offshore wind farm will be built by Eneco with a provision of 130 MW and 250 MW by Shell from Hollandske Kust Noord offshore wind farm.
The deal aligns with Amazon’s aim at reaching net carbon neutrality by 2040. The retail giant has pledged to achieve net zero carbon shipments through renewable energy initiatives and improvements after receiving a lot of pressure from environmental activists and employees to act on climate change.
Last year in July, both Royal Dutch Shell and Eneco won a zero-subsidy tender with a joint consortium to build a 750 MV wind farm in the North Sea off the Dutch coast. The farm will produce 3.3 terawatt-hours (TWh) every year.
Eneco revealed of reserving 130 MV of the total power for Amazon and starting to operate in 2023.
Last year, Mitsubishi Corp and Chubu Electric Power Co Inc. bought Eneco at a value of 4.1 billion euros.
