Aug. 24, 2017 - Domtar says it has inaugurated its second generating unit with a power output of 18 MW at its Windsor, Que., mill.

The start-up of its second generating unit, built for $36 million, will improve the energy efficiency of the mill produced from renewable resources while reducing production costs, notes Domtar.

In 2001, the mill inaugurated its first 32 MW generating unit.

Éric Ashby, general manager of Domtar’s Windsor mill, said that with the addition of a second generating unit, the mill will become one of the major producers of renewable energy in the Eastern Townships.

“Our total production capacity will reach nearly 50 MW and will allow us to feed the equivalent of the annual energy consumption of 12,800 single-family dwellings. By using forest biomass as a fuel to produce green energy, Domtar demonstrates its commitment to innovation and sustainable development,” he continued.
