Geminor wins contract to supply Swedish RDF facility

Geminor has won a new contract to supply more than 27,000 tonnes of RDF to the Renova energy from waste (EFW) facility in Gothenburg. The 12-month agreement, which commences in January 2018, is the latest in a long line of contract wins for the European secondary fuels specialist.

From its source in the UK, Geminor will manage baled RDF haulage across the North Sea to the at Gothenburg Harbour. From here, bales will be broken, with loose material loaded on to specialist vehicles and transported to the Renova facility.

Prior to entering the furnaces, RDF will be sorted and inspected to remove any remaining metals or contaminants. Finally, the material will be recovered into renewable energy and exported directly to the Gothenburg district heating network.

Commenting on the agreement, Per Mernelius, Country Manager at Geminor SWE AB, said: “We are looking forward to working alongside Renova to manage the supply and recovery of high-quality RDF material from the UK.

“We were chosen to deliver the project due to our experience, expertise and pan-European logistics network. This, alongside our creative use of empty-leg logistics, ensures an unparalleled service delivered at a highly effective price point.”
