Canfor Pulp to invest about $105 million in Northwood and Taylor Pulp Mill
|The Northwood project will install a new 32 megawatt condensing turbo-generator for an estimated cost of $65 million. The Taylor project will upgrade the refining line for an estimated cost of $40 million. The Taylor project will be partially funded through BC Hydro’s conservation program incentives.|
These projects will yield a significant improvement in overall mill energy efficiency and will result in a reduction in total fuel consumption.
The sustaining benefits of the projects will also include reductions in mill water use, steam use per tonne of pulp and natural gas consumption.
“These projects reflect Canfor Pulp’s commitment to sustainable pulp production while continuing to improve the cost competitiveness of our pulp mills,” said Canfor Pulp President Brett Robinson.rkj / 07/26/2017
