Stryker and Ørsted have signed a power purchase agreement (PPA). Stryker will purchase wind energy from Sunflower Wind in Marion County, Kansas USA.

Ørsted has partnered with Stryker, a global provider of medical technology, to help the company achieve its goal of powering all facilities with renewable electricity by 2027. As part of Stryker’s first long-term power purchase agreement, Ørsted will deliver 37 megawatts (MW) of wind power – enough to address 75% of Stryker’s electricity in North America – over the next 12 years.

“Ørsted is pleased to deliver renewable energy from Sunflower Wind. We look forward to working with Stryker in supporting their sustainability journey,” says Ben Pratt, Head of Growth and Revenue at Ørsted Americas.

The Sunflower Wind Farm operated by Ørsted is a 200 MW wind project in Marion County, Kansas, and will generate enough wind power to power the equivalent of more than 77,000 households.

“As a global healthcare leader, we understand the growing link between human health and environmental health and our role to deliver sustainable solutions,” says Viju Menon, Group President of Stryker’s Global Quality and Operations. “Securing renewable energy at large scale helps us play a role in decarbonising the healthcare sector.”
