Nature’s Flame ships second supply of pellets
The Taupo-based plant, which cost $34 million (€24.55 million) to build, has a total output capacity of 40,000 tonnes of pellets a year but the company is already planning to expand this to 90,000 tonnes.
Earlier this month Nature’s Flame loaded its second bulk shipment of pellets as part of a three-year $15 million supply agreement.
The 17,000 tonnes of wood pellet fuel were loaded at Napier, following its first shipment of 6,700 tonnes, which went in March.
The pellets are destined for Europe where they will be utilised by a number of utility companies.
