Resolute Forest Products Inc. has inaugurated a power island at its pulp and paper operation located in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

The power island includes a refurbished and upgraded woodwaste boiler and a new 65 MW condensing turbine, and the Ontario Power Authority will buy the green energy under a power purchase agreement.

"The power island is a strategic addition to Resolute's Thunder Bay facility," states Richard Garneau, president and CEO of Resolute. "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."
