Geminor secures waste wood contract in Denmark
Geminor has signed a long-term export contract with Denmarks largest waste recovery company, Vestforbrænding.
The new long-term contract, which Geminor won through an official tendering process, binds the resource management company to export a total of 100 000 tonnes of waste wood produced at Danish Vestforbrænding. The contract has a duration of four years, and first export will commence 1. October this year.
The recycled waste wood, type A2, will be exported to off-takers in both Sweden and Latvia, and will be utilized in the production of furniture. The transport will be completed by bulk shipment from a HUB close to Copenhagen, as well as road transport.
Vestforbrænding is Denmark’s largest waste recovery company, owned by 19 regional municipalities surrounding Copenhagen. The company offers solutions within the collection and treatment of waste, and the supply of district heating and electricity.
Country Manager for Geminor in Denmark, Kasper Houmark Thomsen, comments on the new contract.
– Securing this contract in the Danish waste market is a very satisfying milestone for Geminor. This is an important and natural step for us, since we want to be able to work both up- and downstream as a full-scale provider of services in the market, Thomsen says.
