Fertiliser Recycling Elzenburg
Manure. For livestock farmers, governments and many citizens in North Brabant, it is a hot item. Good manure is indispensable to our food production. But in our region, we are dealing with a surplus: more manure is produced than the Brabant soil can absorb. At the same time, though, the global demand for organic fertiliser as an alternative for artificial manure is growing significantly. This offers opportunities! OOC Terminals and the Mineralen Afzet Coöperatie Elsendorp (MACE, Mineral Sales Cooperation Elsendorp) want to provide a significant boost to sustainable, circular agriculture and society through their plans for a fertiliser factory.
At the end of January OOC Rail received its ‘new’ shunting engine for shunting between Oss Centraal and the terminal..
Prorail and Oss local council are jointly working on the rail infrastructure for Oss. The goods yard is being further developed at rapid speed into a modern and safe industrial connection.
New Reach Truck
In December 2015 a second reach truck was purchased for the transhipment of containers and trailers from and to intermodal trains. The reach truck has a piggyback spreader and stamps to do this, so that a load of up to 32 tons can be lifted on the 2 available tracks.
