WINDSOR, QC — Montreal-based Domtar Inc. plans to spend $23 million to build a cogeneration plant at its Windsor facility. Once complete, the facility will supply 32 megawatts of electricity, accounting for about one-third of the mill’s energy consumption. “This investment is very important for Domtar, which competes with large American paper manufacturers, most of which possess this technology,” the company said in a release. Domtar is Canada’s largest producer of specialty and fine papers and North America’s seventh largest. To achieve this large-scale project, Domtar has signed a contract with Hitachi Canada, which will work with SNC-Lavalin on overseeing the engineering and management of the project. Construction is scheduled to start in June 2000, and the cogen plant should start generating electricity by July 2001.
