Wood pellet company expands footprint and export capacity
US-based Enova Wood Pellet Group has signed a long-term port agreement as it looks to solidify a presence in Georgia and South Carolina.
The deal was inked with Georgia Kaolin Terminals (GKT) and will provide Enova with enough capacity to export up to 1.35 million tonnes of wood pellets via the facility in Savannah. GKT is a subsidiary of the Colonial Group.
‘This is a milestone for Enova to partner with a world class terminal operator such as Colonial because it will enable us to export the largest quantity of wood pellets through a single port facility in the Southeast,’ says VP of Enova logistics and transportation, Mark Newhart. ‘The terminal will provide a steady source of income and add new jobs to the community.’
This comes while Enova is also developing a network of three wood pellet production plants in both South Carolina and Georgia.
