December 3 (Renewables Now) - Argentine power producer Genneia SA said it has signed a five-year agreement to supply electricity from its wind farms to Swedish-Swiss multinational food packaging and processing company Tetra Pak.

Under the power purchase agreement (PPA), Tetra Pak will receive an annual supply of around 6,156 MWh, or enough for its factory in Argentina’s La Rioja province to meet over 50% of its consumption needs.
