Strategic contracts
Geminor has delivered logistical services for these companies since 2014. Country Manager for Geminor in Norway, Kjetil Hausken, is very pleased with the extended contracts.

– We are very pleased renewing the partnerships with these three major intermunicipal companies. Long-term contracts like this have strategical value to us because they secure and stabilize our portfolio in Norway, says Hausken.

– The contracts mainly involve sorted household waste, which works well for energy recovery and the production of heat and electricity. In addition, these contracts secure return transport for our logistics partners. Borregaard’s plant in the town of Sarpsborg is an important recipient for this waste – but we will also distribute the volumes to other off-takers in both Norway and Sweden, concludes Country Manager for Geminor in Norway, Kjetil Hausken.
