SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Richmond, B.C.-based Paper Excellence announced that it is nearing completion of a significant project to winterize the pulp mill at Prince Albert Pulp Inc (PAPI). The interior of the mill is heated for the first time since 2014. The project is expected to cost approximately $500,000.
This takes the mill one step closer to officially restarting the pulp mill. Paper Excellence had purchased the defunct mill back in 2011. The winterizing of the mill is also expected to help prevent weather-related damage to the outside of the mill, especially in this cold weather conditions.
Carlo Dal Monte, VP of Energy and Business Development for Paper Excellence said that being able to heat the interior of the mill means a safer working environment for the team and contractors in the site.
Last year, the Government of Saskatchewan had allocated 1.034 million cubic metre of softwood timber in support of the Prince Albert mill restart. Also, it is working closely with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment to complete the necessary environmental assessment process in the coming months. The restart of the mill is subject to market conditions and necessary permit approvals.
