Moelven has entered into a cooperation agreement with SCA to deliver pellets from Moelven’s new pellet factory.

The collaboration will provide the Swedish group SCA with a long-term and exclusive supply agreement of 80 000 tonne per annum, which is the entire production volume from Moelven Pellet’s factory in Sokna in Eastern Norway.

 “This is a massive agreement for Moelven Pellets, a company that will first start its operations in the fall of 2019. We are proud to become a supplier to such an experienced group with exciting ambitions regarding renewable energy. This agreement also shows that Moelven ventured into the pellet market at the right time with our energy-efficient and innovative pellet plant”, says CEO Lars Storslett in Moelven Pellets AS.

As SCA is growing within the area of renewable energy, they have, among other things, an increasing need for wood pellet.

“I look forward to cooperating with Moelven, and I’m pleased that we have been trusted to convey this large volume of quality pellets to the market”, says Stefan Rönnqvist, SCA.

“In the transition towards a more sustainable society, we see an increasing need for biofuels. This applies to all sectors, but especially within the transport sector. Together, SCA and Moelven can contribute to a positive development for renewable energy”, says Rönnqvist.
