Boiler leak at Canfor’s Northwood Pulp Mill
There was a boiler leak at Canfor‘s Northwood Pulp Mill in Prince George, British Columbia last evening.
60 employees were evacuated and the mill was shut down for 2 hours while the boiler was drained.
Robert Dufresne, General Manager of the mill said that some damage was found “on the upper level, because the boiler had been pressurized so we had damage to the cladding and insulation on the upper floors.”
Dufresne hoped to have half the mill back in operation this afternoon. Before the other half is reopened, inspections are required to determine what caused the leak.
