WILMINGTON, NC -- The N.C. State Ports Authority has issued a request for proposals to design and build a major dry bulk export facility at the Port of Wilmington.

The facility would receive, store and transfer wood pellets to ships for transport to Europe, where they are used by utility companies as fuel in energy production.

Bids are due back Jan. 31 from nine pre-qualified teams from the Carolinas, Georgia and Pennsylvania.

The facility will be in operation in 2015, said Danny McComas, Ports Authority chairman and former Republican state representative from New Hanover County, Monday.
