Modernization of the wood maritime terminal


In 2017, the modernization works in the wood maritime terminal were concluded with the replacement of the diesel-powered loading machines by two electric cranes. The 100%-renewable energy is generated by the Fibria mill in Aracruz, by burning biomass, with significant gains in sustainability and safety and a reduction in the time for unloading from barges and emission of greenhouse gases.
