BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enviva Partners, LP (NYSE: EVA) (the “Partnership” or “our”) today reported that Hurricane Dorian has resulted in minimal impact to its operations.
The Partnership undertook substantial preparation in advance of Hurricane Dorian to keep employees safe and minimize disruption, including briefly idling operations at several of our facilities directly affected by the storm. As a precaution, the North Carolina State Ports Authority ordered the closure of the Port of Wilmington late Wednesday, September 4, which suspended operations at our deep-water marine terminal there (the “Wilmington terminal”). The port re-opened early Saturday, September 7, and the Partnership immediately resumed normal operations at the Wilmington terminal. Based on initial assessments, Hurricane Dorian has not caused any material disruption in the Partnership’s operations or damage to its production and terminal facilities.
