French port gets Danish cement terminal

Shorter delivery times and focus on the environment were crucial to the fact that the world's largest white cement producer, Aalborg Portland, chose to build its own port terminal in the French port city of Rochefort. The ship transport of cement from Aalborg to France affects the environment less, the company explains.

Aalborg Portland's major investment in the French market is now supported by its own terminal in Rochefort on the French Atlantic coast.

"Energy and resource efficiency is a top priority in our company, and we work every day to minimize our impact on the environment. By establishing our terminal in the port of Rochefort, we eliminate the need to transport the white cement with tankers from the Netherlands, as we can instead ship the cement directly to France from our cement plant in Aalborg, which has a significantly lesser environmental impact," says Henrik Hougaard, Sales Director at Aalborg Portland.

The investment in the construction, which has just been completed, amounts to 25 million DKK and is Aalborg Portland's first silo plant in France, one of the largest white cement markets in Europe.
