French industrial gas supplier Air Liquide has signed a long-term power purchase agreement for a portion of the output of a wind project in Texas.

The corporation will buy 5 MW from NextEra Energy Resources' 300 MW Fort McKavett wind project in Menard County under the terms of the deal.

Air Liquide, which produces gases for use in the medical, chemical and electronics industries, has A3 and A- credit ratings from Moody’s Investors Service and S&P Global Ratings, higher than many regulated utilities. The Paris-based company says it expects to supply “a significant portion of its growing industrial gas production assets in Texas using renewable energy sources.”

The Fort McKavett wind project is expected to be online by the fourth quarter of 2020.
