Biomass plant expected at full capacity by late June
May 27, 2013, Point Tupper, N.B. - Nova Scotia's new biomass plant creates electricity from harvested biomass, and has been partly functioning for the past few months. By the end of June, the plant is said to be in full production.
Roger Burton, the utility's senior director of projects,
said that testing is underway at the $200-million
facility located at the Port Hawkesbury Paper site in Point Tupper, N.B.
The facility is expected to generate about 60 megawatts of
electricity a year, enough to power about 50,000 homes and the utility is expected
to buy roughly 500,000 tonnes of biomass fuel annually.
