Enviva reports minimal hurricane damage

By Enviva Partners LP | September 18, 2018

Enviva Partners LP reported Sept. 17 that its facilities have incurred only minor damage from Hurricane Florence.

The partnership undertook substantial preparation in advance of Hurricane Florence’s landfall to keep employees safe and minimize disruption, including proactively idling operations at its production facility in Sampson County, North Carolina, and its deep-water marine terminal in the North Carolina State Ports Authority’s Port of Wilmington. Based on initial assessments, the Sampson plant and Wilmington terminal have not incurred significant wind or water damage. The Sampson plant has restarted operations and the partnership believes its Wilmington terminal will be able to begin receiving pellets later this week, subject to approval from the NCSPA and other relevant authorities to reopen the Port of Wilmington.

With challenges in the NCSPA’s Port of Wilmington and the surrounding region due to flooding and residual effects of the storm, the partnership expects modest impacts to its shipments from its Wilmington terminal. The partnership will continue to assess any temporary impact on its operations and expects to provide an update as more information becomes available.
