Powerday inks new RDF contract with Geminor
Waste management firm Powerday has commenced a new contract with Northern European waste-to-energy company Geminor for the export of 170,000 tonnes of refuse derived fuel (RDF) to Sweden.
The company produces RDF at its Old Oak Sidings and Enfield Materials Recycling Facilities and then loads them for transfer.
Under the contract with Geminor, the material is taken to Sheerness Port then by utilising ‘dead leg’ sea freight return journeys the material is shipped to Oxelösund Port in East Sweden.
It is then supplied as needed to the Hogdalen waste-to-energy facility in Stockholm, Sweden operated by Fortum which produces 91 MW of energy. Powerday will supply approximately 30% of its fuel.
Powerday has been working with Geminor since 2015 and has carried out extensive testing which included a trial of 8000 tonnes through the summer of 2016.
