The Fibrek mill in Saint-Félicien, Que., will receive $6.1 million under the Pulp and Paper Green Transformation Program. This funding will allow Fibrek to install five electrical motors that will increase its green energy production capacity by approximately six megawatts. It is expected that this project will also help save enough energy to power more than 1,700 homes.

“This timely help from the federal government is an incentive toward the completion of a very important project for Fibrek’s cogeneration facilities in Saint-Félicien,” said Pierre Gabriel Côté, president and CEO of Fibrek. “This project will allow us, not only to increase our leadership in the production of green energy, but also to improve our mill’s competitiveness.”
