Kruger Inc. confirmed that Hydro-Qubec has retained the 16 MW biomass cogeneration project of the Brompton Mill following the call for tenders issued by Hydro-Qubec for the supply of 100 MW of electricity produced from biomass.
The green energy production project consists of installing a boiler to burn biomass residue for the production of steam. The steam will then be sent to a new power-generating turbine. An investment of over $60 million is required to complete the project.
Using biomass will reduce the Brompton mill’s annual consumption of fossil fuel by 25-million-liters. This change will contribute an annual reduction in greenhouse gas equivalent to 80,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2 e).
Kruger Inc. will take all the necessary steps to obtain the required authorizations over the next few months. Construction work could begin as soon as all government authorizations are received.
