Ecore kicks off operations in the Benelux area

Belgium/The Netherlands – European scrap recycler Ecore Group has arranged the first shipment from its recently-built bulk terminal at Ghent in Belgium, from where it plans to load one or two 30 000- to 40 000-tonne cargoes each month, according to General Secretary Bruno Le Sech.

This initial order was booked by a Turkish mill and covered the delivery of 35 000 tonnes. ‘€˜Tonnage from the recently-acquired recycler Recylux will be used for the shipments, as well as sourcing from Ecore’€™s own yards in east France,’€™ notes Mr Le Sech. ‘€˜Cargoes will be loaded to Turkey and other Asian markets, depending on demand.’€™

Previously managing around 2-2.5 million tonnes per annum, Mr Le Sech says recent ‘€˜major acquisitions’€™ – especially the deal with Recylux – have pushed Ecore’€™s annual tonnage to 4.5-5 million tonnes. Recylux owned a deep-sea terminal in Dordrecht, the Netherlands, for which Mr Le Sech says ‘€˜a timeline to start moving vessels in and out’€™ has already been established, pinpointing the summer as the kick-off for this venture given that ‘€˜everything is already in place’€™.
