Turbine blades will be recycled in Grenaa
Demacq Recycling International B.V. has specialized in recycling wind turbine blades in the Netherlands. Now the company looks to Denmark. According to Cora Burger, co-owner of Demacq Recycling, "it is very likely" that the company opens a branch at Grenaa Harbor.
"Grenaa Harbor is distinguished by offering both space, facilities and a considerable water depth. These qualities make it easy to bring the blades from the sea turbines onto land," says Cora Burger.
The chairman of the network Djurs Wind Power, Bo Allermann, is convinced that Demacq Recycling decides to open a branch at Grenaa Harbor. He believes that in all ways, a great naturalness is in the company network's cooperation with Demacq Recycling and awaits benefits for Grenaa and Djurs Wind Power.
At Grenaa Harbor, Director Henrik Carstensen welcomes the interest of Holland's first and only company that recycles wind turbine blades. The harbor already has several recycling companies and at the same time an ambition to be the country's most versatile recycling port.
Demacq Recycling is initially considering opening a branch at Grenaa Harbor, which will receive the turbine blades and cut them into smaller parts, then transport them for recycling in Moerdijk, Holland. In the future it may be a facility that can convert used blades into recyclable materials.
"If demand in Denmark is as large as we expect, we will positively explore the possibilities of constructing a fully operational plant in Grenaa," says Cora Burger.
