Resolute Forest Products inaugurates green energy power island at their Thunder Bay, Ontario operation
The power island includes a refurbished and upgraded woodwaste boiler and a new 65-megawatt condensing turbine. Approved by Resolute in early 2011, the C$65 million project took just over 21 months to complete.
“The power island is a strategic addition to Resolute’s Thunder Bay facility,” stated Richard Garneau, President and Chief Executive Officer. “It will reduce the mill’s energy costs as well as maximize our local woodlands, sawmill, pulp and paper, and energy operations by fully utilizing forest-based biomass to produce green electricity.”
