Aucto.com will be hosting a two-day online auction on November 18 and 19 to liquidate the assets of a large pulp mill in Prince Rupert, B.C. — the Skeena pulp mill.
The Skeena Cellulose mill was a large pulp mill with a kraft pulping operation capable of producing more than 1,000 tons per day. The facility had updated its equipment including: the installation of a state-of-the-art ClO2 plant and O2 delignification towers, and a major overhaul of the Kamyr continuous digesters. The site location has a transportation infrastructure supporting port, railway and truck access.
NRI Industrial, the sales division of NRI Global, will be hosting the auction of the assets on Aucto.com. NRI is a Canadian-based asset management firm that acquires and provides turn-key solutions for distressed assets. They have been contracted by the city of Prince Rupert to manage the orderly removal of assets and decommissioning of a substantial portion of the pulp mill to be able to redevelop the land on Watson Island for future economic use.
