Wood Chip

975CIMG0497.JPG Large quantities of wood chip are exported to Northern Europe and Scandinavia from Shoreham Port. Stobart Biomass sources waste wood, which is shredded and processed into a finished usable product (wood chip) and exported via ship to power stations in Northern Europe and Scandinavia. The wood chip is burnt there and produces electricity and hot water for use in heating systems. This material would otherwise be destined for UK landfill sites.

To enable a fast and efficient load rate, Shoreham Port has an ‘orange peel’ grab, which has a capacity of 10 cubic metres. This allows approximately 2,000 tonnes of wood chip to be loaded onto a ship and compacted in only 26 hours.
