EOP Biodiesel AG inaugurates new train connection
- Significant savings in transport costs expected
- less truck transports are a further contribution to environmental protection
- tank farm capacity extended by 12,000 cubic metres
EOP Biodiesel AG officially inaugurated its railway connection at its biodiesel plant in Pritzwalk today. This means that raw material as well as biodiesel can be received and dispatched by rail now. Per train with up to 20 wagons about 1.000 tons can be shifted in one go, which is the equivalent of 40 tanker trucks. Until today the plant could only be reached by truck.
"Witt help of this railway connection we are cutting our operating costs and are further contributing to environmental protection, by avoiding truck journeys," says CEO Sven Schön. The railway track layout comprises a length of about three kilometers. At the same time, EOP Biodiesel AG has extended its tank farm capacity by 12,000 cubic metres. "This enables us to be flexible in our purchasing and can make use of short term price fluctuations", says Schön. The construction time from start to finish was seven months in total.
