CROYDON, UK/AMSTERDAM: Leasing company TIP Netherlands is going to provide customers with trailers incorporating the Dearman revolutionary liquid nitrogen-powered transport refrigeration unit.

The company says its trailer leasing customers want cleaner and more efficient solutions for their tractor units and the Dearman engine will complement this goal with a clean refrigeration solution for trailers.

TIP Dearman engineVice president Benelux Rogier Laan commented: “TIP sees its customers frequently playing with the question of how to deal with issues such as sustainability and the type of trailers to be used. We therefore see it as our responsibility to be the best industry partner for these topics and we support innovative solutions that contribute in making our industry more sustainable.”

In addition to its refrigeration systems, Dearman is developing applications upstream in the cold chain including mobile pre-cooling for fresh produce to reduce food waste and associated carbon; and urban and ‘last mile’ solutions including zero emissions transport refrigeration for electrically driven medium-duty delivery vehicles, extending their range and deployment viability.

“TIP’s support for clean technology innovation is major step to enable fleet operators to meet the increasing environmental demands upon them from regulators, foods producers and retailers,” explained Dearman chief commercial officer Khaled Simmons. “The license to operate diesel-powered refrigeration is closing in and it will take leadership from innovative leasing companies like TIP to support the transition to clean alternatives.”

TIP Trailer Services, owned by infrastructure investment company Squared Capital, specialises in trailer leasing, rental, maintenance and repair across 16 European countries and Canada.
SONDERBORG, Denmark: December 2018. Secondary fuels supplier Geminor is partnering with RiverRidge to export 60,000 tonnes of engineered fuels across Europe. The company manages the full export supply chain, including port-to-port shipment, storage and recovery.

From RiverRidge’s flagship fuel engineering facility in Coleraine, Geminor collects a range of highly processed waste fuel. The fuel grades are 30mm SRF, 100mm SRF and 300mm Refined RDF, each destined for specialist recovery facilities.

Each grade of fuel is either transhipped to Geminor’s multimodal logistics terminal in Sweden (for onward delivery to advanced recovery technology partners Landskrona Energi), directly to the Aalborg Portland Cement production facility in Denmark or to the REFA recovery facility in Denmark.

Commenting on the partnership, Oliver Caunce, Senior Account and Business Development manager at Geminor UK, said: “As the latest in a long line of UK supply successes for Geminor, agreeing an export contract with visionary waste management company RiverRidge is exciting news.

“This is an important step for Geminor in growing its service provision to multi-fuel waste management companies and will play a vital role in our ongoing expansion into advanced waste fuels market, while supporting EfW facilities with distinct fuel requirements.”

Gavin Doherty, Fuels manager at RiverRidge added: “Engineering fuels to an exact specification is where RiverRidge has established itself across the UK and Ireland. With unique infrastructure and technology we are able to manufacture fuels to specific parameters and characteristics that can be customer-specific. We are excited at the partnership with Geminor, secondary fuel specialists, which will ensure timely delivery of our various specifications of fuel to many recovery facilities across Europe.”

Geminor was first established in 1994 by the Danish waste processing company Gemidan. Today the Geminor Group of companies is one of Northern Europe’s foremost organisations specialising in the supply of secondary fuels.

RiverRidge operates Northern Ireland’s largest and most diversified independent waste management company. Initially acquired in 2011, the company has undergone substantial investment over the past number of years which has transformed it from a small skip hire and landfill business to the fully integrated waste recovery operation it is today.
