From Griff Lynch, Georgia Ports Authority

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

As you may know, on July 1, I assumed the duties of executive director for the Georgia Ports Authority. For five years, I have had the honor to serve as Chief Operating Officer for the GPA, under the leadership of Curtis Foltz. 

Upon taking on this new responsibility, we remain committed to significantly increasing capacity ahead of current demand so that we can accommodate your cargo into the future.

Grieg Star Shipping recently delivered several pieces of project cargo to the Port of Brunswick.

The shipping line delivered equipment to be used as part of a 50-megawatt biomass plant in Albany, Ga. Constellation Energy, doing business as Albany Green Energy, will own and operate the $200 million facility.

The plant will provide 60 percent to 70 percent of the total energy needs for the Procter and Gamble facility in Albany, Ga., doubling the use of renewable energy currently used at the plant.
