The build of a new warehouse at Västra hamnen started early autumn last year. During the winter the building process has been going as planned and M90 was ready for use a couple of weeks ago. The first vessel, loaded with 3 800 tons of wood pellets, was received just a few days after the warehouse was finished.
M90 has been built for storing pellets for our customer Göteborg Energi. The pellets arrive to us by vessel and initially the annual volume over the quay will be 45 - 60,000 tonnes, and then increase to around 90,000 tonnes per year. The agreement with Göteborg Energi is for 5 years with an option for another 3 years. The intention is that the warehouse will then be moved to a new area on, or near, the current quarry.
The general contractor for the construction was Hallgruppen and MEXL has been the construction manager and quality manager for the project. Most of the contractors we have hired have had a local connection, which we think adds an extra bonus to this project.
