Forth Ports Ltd has formed a long term partnership with SITA UK, a subsidiary of Suez Environment to create the new facility. The arrangement includes the acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, of Forth Ports-owned Nordic Recycling by SITA UK under a share purchase agreement and a long-term agreement between the two companies.

As part of this agreement, SITA UK will deliver a new Alternative Fuels waste material processing facility at the Port of Tilbury, which will process both solid recovered fuel (SRF) and refuse derived fuel (RDF). The facility is part of a multi-million pound investment which will complement the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) currently operated at the Tilbury.

Nordic Recycling, based at Tilbury Dock, includes the 100,000 tpa capacity Materials Recovery Facility and a recycling collection business, which have become part of SITA UK’s wider operations.

SITA UK’s CEO David Palmer-Jones said: “I am very pleased to welcome Nordic Recycling to SITA UK. We look forward to working with our new colleagues to further improve the efficiency of the materials recycling facility and to expand our recycling activities in the south east of England.

“By investing in new processing facilities at the port, we will not only create new jobs, but will also enable the south east to divert a significant amount of its waste material from landfill and put it to good use instead.”

Charles Hammond, group CEO of Forth Ports, said: “This new long term partnership is a significant achievement for our business and we are delighted to be working with our multi-national customer, SITA UK.

“The sale of Nordic Recycling will allow us to focus on our key port activities and SITA UK’s expansion plans at the port play to our key strengths in the handling and distribution of general cargo and containers. Through our excellent port-centric networks and logistics experience, we will play a significant part in the success of this partnership.”

As part of the agreement, the Port of Tilbury has also awarded a 10-year contract to Nordic Recycling – subject to regular market-testing – to provide waste management services at the port.
