Storage and Terminaling Assets
Our wholly-owned port in Wilmington, NC (startup 2016) on the Cape Fear River serves as the shipment point for pellets manufactured at our Sampson and Hamlet plants. The terminal can host a wide variety of vessels, up to a 42-foot draft, and it is equipped to receive pellet deliveries via truck and railroad. The facility includes two wood pellet storage domes with 45,000 metric tons of storage capacity each. 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.
