Scottish logistics firm wins biomass contract

Energy company RWE nPower has awarded a logistics contract as it further advances the construction of a CHP facility in Scotland.

To be housed on the site of a paper mill in Markinch, the 49.9MW plant is expected to burn over 400,000 tonnes of wood. Malcolm Logistics has won the contract to deliver at least a third of the required fuel needed.

‘This contract will make a positive impact on our own business and, in turn, on the local economy,’ Malcolm Logistics MD Jim Clark was quoted as saying. “In order to service the contract we are expanding our fleet initially and opening a satellite depot close to RWE’s Cardenden-based processing site.’

The RWE facility is set to cost £200 million (€233 million) and will burn 90% recovered wood and 10% new wood from sustainable forests.
