Turbine readied for $208m biomass cogeneration plant in Canada

Construction is continuing on a $208m biomasss cogeneration plant at Point Tupper, Canada, with the facility’s turbine due to arrive next month.

Biomass plant
The Cape Breton post reports that progress on the construction of the project was delayed last year when NewPage Port Hawkesbury, which was going to operate the facility for Nova Scotia Power Inc., shut down indefinitely and entered creditor protection.

NSPI subsequently took over control of the project.

The steam turbine generator was constructed by Mitsubishi Power Systems in Japan.

The facility will be located at the NewPage Point Tupper mill site and will see biomass burned to produce electricity. It is to generate about 60 MW of electricity a year, enough to power about 50,000 homes.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of March 2013.
