Description of the project

Nuon is willing to co-fire wood pellets for a period of 8 years in 2 phases, with increasing volume and changing the supply to the power plant from trucks to barges. Cleaning, de-ironing and milling is required prior to entering the plant. PCR made an analysis of the original logistics chain and optimized it by checking capacities, identifying bottlenecks and operational risks and selecting a preferred import concept variant together with the client. PCR also provided cost estimates and drawings.
