Wes Edens and his successful company New Fortress Energy have been excited to share a deal they’ve struck with Norsk Hydro ASA to supply natural gas to Brazil’s Alunorte Alumina Refinery. The industry leader is a global energy infrastructure company that seeks to lead the world into effective, clean energy. Headed by their Chairman and CEO, Wes Edens, New Fortress Energy will provide the Brazilian refinery with natural gas and allow access to the resource for many other industries and consumers.
New Fortress Energy and Wes Edens are excited to provide Brazil access to natural fuel, allowing for the flourishing of “global sustainability and environmental commitment.” Their projected fuel switch will reduce the industry’s carbon footprint by about 600,000 tons. Replacing carbon-intensive fuels will be a boon to the Pará state in Brazil, as industrial growth booms. Alunorte is considered one of the most energy-efficient alumina refineries on the planet. The switch to more environmentally friendly natural gas will be one of the first and most important steps to improve operations on top of driving sustainability.
Headed by Edens, New Fortress Energy is ever-evolving, continually in pursuit of providing energy solutions to companies all over the globe. They deliver on this by not only funding, building, and operating modern natural gas infrastructure, but also through nurturing economic growth as well as the transformation of local communities. So while we are not entirely out of the dark yet when it comes to cleaning up our greenhouse emissions, deals like the one executed between New Fortress Energy and Norsk Hydro ASA are our best bet in speeding up that goal.
