Harmac Pacific pulp mill in BC nears energy self-sufficiency with new $45 million co-gen plant [From the web]

NANAIMO, BC, Feb. 25, 2013 (Local News) - The Harmac pulp mill is one step closer to being entirely self-sufficient, energy-wise, after the arrival of a generator and a turbine for the facility's new $45-million electrical generation plant.

Nanaimo Forest Products, which owns the mill, and B.C. Hydro signed a 15-year agreement last year that will see Harmac sell approximately 15 megawatts from the 25-megawatt plant to the Crown corporation, while using the rest to help meet the mill's power demands.
