June 13, 2016 – A legal battle between Thermogen and Conti Enterprises is causing delays for a proposed pellet plant at the site of a former paper mill in Maine.

According to a report in the Bangor Daily News, the conversion of the former Great Northern Pulp site in Millinocket has been delayed by a suit and countersuit filed between the site owner and the lead contractor.

New Jersey-based Conti Enterprises, the lead contractor for the plant conversion, is seeking $16.45 million for payment of a prior contract and damages. Thermogen has countersued, stating that Conti was unable to keep up with changes to the design to steer production towards exports to European markets.
