Timber unloading in Swede Harbour

In February, Copenhagen Malmö Port, CMP, handled a timber load in Swede Harbour; it was the first unloading of timber in the bulk harbour in over 12 years.

- The unloading process was efficient and considerably quicker than what we had initially planned for, which was of course positive both for the customer and us. We hope to handle wood fuel/timber more regularly from here on,” says Gustav Brising, manager of the dry bulk terminal at CMP in Malmö.

After unloading, the timber was sent to E.ON’s heating plant, neighbour to the bulk harbour, where it is used as fuel in district heating production. Unlike natural gas, timber/woodchip is a renewable fuel source and thereby a better alternative for the environment.
