Wes Edens is the type of person who is looking for new opportunities in the world of business. This is true of his company called New Fortress Energy. Now the company has found a new area in which to expand. The company knows that the country of Brazil is ripe with new possibilities. Now that has come to fruition with a new deal in the city of Para, Brazil. The deal between New Fortress Energy and Hydro will benefit the city of Para for the next fifteen years.
The deal will be a win-win for both companies. It will allow Wes Edens and his company to supply the natural gas to a local refinery and Hydro gets to share the latest technology when it comes to making natural gas more efficient. They are both helping the local Alunorte Alumina factory stay one step ahead of the competition. Now the focus for both companies can be the same. It will focus on climate change and the impact that this deal will have going forward.
One of the things that Wes Edens likes about the deal is the fact that emissions for the plant will be cut significantly. This is a good thing for the local economy of Para as well. Para will be able to make the switch to more fuel-efficient ways for future projects down the line. This is another reason that Wes Edens really pushed for the deal to be done. He knew that Para was an underdeveloped region in the area of Brazil. Now the region can catch up to the rest of the world when it comes to climate change and their effects of it in the country. Wes Edens is one smart cookie and this new deal in Para is one of the many reasons why.
