Vattenfall has signed power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Falck Renewables to buy the electricity generated by three operational wind farms in the UK.
The projects include the 30MW West Browncastle in South Lanarkshire in Scotland, the 58.5MW Cefn Croes at Aberystwyth in Wales, and the 16.65MW Boyndie near Portsoy and Banff also in Scotland.
The West Browncastle wind farm 12 turbines, which have been operational
It delivers enough enrgy to power the electrical needs of 18,000 families and reduces 32,000 tons of CO2 greenhouse emissions per year.
The Cefn Croes wind farm has been in operation since 2005. It features 39 turbines, which generate enough energy for about 37,000 families and reduce 66,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually.
The Boyndie wind farm, which has been active since 2006, features eight turbines. It provides enough to power about 10,000 homes and reduce 18,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
Falck Renewables Group CEO Toni Volpe said: "These contracts call for a good mix of market energy price and incentive based revenues.
"They also include for the first time a floor pricing mechanism which will protect Falck Renewables in case of further reductions to the energy price in the United Kingdom energy price market."
Cll Holdco, part of Copenhagen Infrastructure I K/S, holds 49% stakes in both the Cefn Croes and Boyndie wind farms.
