Lorany Conseils have been awarded a 20-year concession by HAROPA Le Havre to manage and operate the multi-bulk terminal in the French port.
The terminal, which is located on the south side of Le Havre’s Grand Canal, to handle both maritime and river-borne dry bulk flows, has been idle since May 2019.
Under the terms of the concession, Lorany will develop clinker traffic and also come up with competitive solutions for bulk grain, ore, construction materials, and other materials, including earth and sediments for recycling.
Lorany expects to reactivate the terminal by this summer, and a facility for reception and recycling of earth and sediments, with an eventual capacity of 270,000 tpa, is already planned.
A project for slag imports is also currently under way, as is the creation of a concrete production plant based exclusively on recycled materials.
These industrial resources can be developed on a potential area of 14-ha. The facility is designed to process over 400,000t of goods from the first year of operation and to exceed 1 Mtpa of maritime and river traffic by the tenth year.
