Rekom awarded RDF contract extension in Germany
Norway-headed Rekom AS, a municipal and inter-municipal owned waste management company has extended an existing contract with Returo Entsorgungs GmbH for energy recovery of RDF to MVA Bonn facility owned by Stadtwerke Bonn GmbH, until 2020. Rekom will supply up to 10 000 tonnes per annum of baled and wrapped RDF.
"We are very pleased to announce that one of the first European RDF contracts for Rekom has been further extended to 2020," said Marcos Arizti, Business Development Manager at Rekom.
Returo Entsorgungs GmbH (Returo) is the joint distribution company of two entirely municipal shareholders, acting to ensure the full utilization of the energy from waste (EfW) facilities in Bonn and Leverkusen in Germany. Built in 1992, the Bonn EfW consumes around 260 000 tonnes RDF per annum and delivers steam to the neighbouring cogeneration plant for further conversion into district heating and electricity.
We see in Rekom AS a solid and reliable partner with remarkable experience within the industry. Based on this we are glad to extend the cooperation for the next 3 years, said Andrea Schlüter, Waste Flow Management at Returo.
