Geminor opens new multimodal terminal in Norway
Geminor, one of Europe’s leading waste to energy specialists, has opened a new multimodal logistics terminal at the Port of Fredrikstad. The state-of-the-art facility, which will be used for the handling of bailed RDF from the UK, will play a vital role in the company’s ongoing expansion across Norway.
The terminal will handle more than 120,000 tonnes of feedstock every year, including 20,000 from the nearby port of Brevik. Utilising the ports excellent road connections, waste will be distributed to some of Norway’s leading waste recovery facilities, including Bio-El, Energos Gasification Plant at Borregård and Sarpsborg Avfalls Energi AS.
The logistics hub will also enable 5,000 tonnes of RDF to be stored at any one time. Due to fluctuating requirements for district heating, this provides a valuable buffer in times of high feedstock demand.
Commenting on the opening, Oliver Caunce, Business Development Manager at Geminor UK, said: “Launching an all-new multimodal logistics facility at the Port of Fredrikstad represents yet another impressive milestone for Geminor. The facility will help us further momentum across Norway, as well as support EfW facilities in times of fluctuating fuel requirements.
Feedstock for the site will be drawn from four locations across the UK and be shipped across to Norway from Immingham, in partnership with DFDS logistics.
