Lack of wood chips forced Western Pulp to curtail its pulp mill in Squamish, BC from Aug. 24 to Sept. 8.
The 16-day outage, which is expected to cause a loss of about 13,000 tonnes of northern bleached softwood kraft market (NBSK) production, will also permit the mill to conduct routine maintenance.
Mill executives said because of the downtime, the mill is expected to run without any stoppages until August 2004.
The mill produces 260,000 tonnes/year.
