Rekom and Statkraft Varme enter RDF supply and storage deal

Norway-headed Rekom AS, a municipal and inter-municipal owned waste management and services company has announced that it has started the cooperation for transport and storage of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) which will be sent for energy recovery at Statkraft Varme. The annual amount would be approximately between 10 000 to 12 000 tonnes.

Statkraft Varme has operated district heat plants in Norway and Sweden since 1982 supplying over 1 TWh annually. In Norway, the company operates nine facilities, eight are biomass-fired and one, its facility in Trondheim is a waste-to-energy (WTE) plant (photo courtesy Statkraft Varme).

We have targeted to deliver Statkraft with a competitive offer based on the right quality material, the environmental impact, solid business partners and a lean logistic solution. We thank Statktraft for the given trust and we are looking forward to developing the cooperation for the coming years, said Marcos Arizti, Business Development Manager at Rekom AS.

Statkraft Varme is the district heating company within Statkraft and has been engaged in energy recovery and district heating since 1982. The energy-from-waste (EfW) plant in Trondheim handles over 220 000 tonnes of municipal solid waste (MSW) annually, of which approximately 100 000 tonnes are already supplied by Rekom under existing contracts.

To ensure flexibility in the deliveries, Rekom has provided two different solutions for imports; 5 000 tonnes are directly delivered in 40-ft containers and another 5 000 tonnes with side port vessels to a local warehouse before the bales are transported for energy recovery.

The unique and efficient logistic solution was crucial for Rekom being awarded the contract to transport and storage RDF for energy recovery at Statkraft, said Snorre Gangaune, Senior Business Development Manager at Statkraft Varme.
