Storage and Terminaling Assets
Our Port in Chesapeake, VA (startup November 2011), serves as the shipment point for pellets manufactured at our mid-Atlantic facilities, including the Ahoskie, Northampton, and Southampton plants. The port is wholly owned by Enviva Inc., and can host a wide variety of vessels, up to a 42-foot draft. The facility includes two wood pellet storage domes with 45,000 metric tons of storage capacity each. The port’s strategic location decreases transportation time and costs throughout the supply chain to greatly benefit customers. The domes are built to withstand extreme conditions including hurricanes, winds up to 300 mph, and an 8+ Richter scale earthquake. They are continuously monitored for temperature control, fire detection, and suppression.
