Transportation of woodchips and sawdust
Efficiency through environmental awareness
Port-Cartier, 2014- MEGA / MOTTI takes over the tandem ECHO / BETSIAMITES to transport bark and sawdust for the company Arbec. Operations will be carried out between the sawmill at Port-Cartier, the Port of Trois-Rivières and Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia. A total of 15 trips are planned; it is equivalent to more than 125,000 tons of bark and sawdust or about 3,500 45-ft truckloads.
The choice of marine transportation can significantly reduce traffic on Highways 138 and 20. Services offered by Océan Navigation allow Arbec to reduce by four (4) times the mileage, to use four (4) times less fuel and to produce four (4) times less GHG emissions than if they had opted for road transposrt.
Following the contract with Arbec, the MEGA / MOTTI tandem completed three (3) trips of wood residue between Belledune, New Brunswick and Mulgrave, Nova Scotia.
