At the turn of October the first sod was cut for the construction of a new warehouse in Västra Hamnen. The warehouse will be built with the purpose of storing pellets for the energy company Göteborg Energi. The pellets will arrive to us by vessel, with an annual volume of initially 45 - 60,000 tonnes which will gradually increase to around 90,000 tonnes per year.
The length of our agreement is 5 years with an option for another 3 years. Once the agreement has expired our intention is to move the warehouse to a new area on, or near, the current quarry.
The warehouse is expected to be completed by the end of February 2022 and we look forward to follow the construction process. The general contractor for the project is Hallgruppen and MEXL is the construction- and quality manager.
