Geminor signs four year waste fuel supply contract with Hafslund

Norway-headed Geminor, one of northern Europe’s largest supplier of waste derived fuels to waste-to-energy plants has announced that it has signed a four-year fuel supply contract with compatriot Hafslund Varme.

According to a statement, Hafslund has renewed its cooperation with a four-year contract with Geminor. The contract includes delivery of between 35-40 000 tonnes of waste fuels annually to the Haraldrud plant in Oslo, Norway.

The single most important factor for Hafslund Varme is quality so that we do not risk shutting down the CFB-plant at Haraldrud momentarily due to bad fuels. We use industrial waste somewhere in between SRF and RDF, and we need a partner that constantly controls the products at all levels and delivers the preferred mix of waste. Everything taken into consideration, we chose to continue with Geminor as our partner, said Eirik F. Tandberg, Senior Vice President at Hafslund Varme.

Hafslund is Norway’s largest supplier of district heating supplying around 1.7 TWh annually which is around 36 percent of all district heating generated in the country.

We are happy to continue to work with Hafslund, and our goal is to develop our services further. Obtaining the best fuels and the best services possible is a constant process, and a job we are committed to delivering in the years to come, said Kjetil Vikingstad, CEO at Geminor.
