May 4, 2012 – The former
NewPage Port Hawkesbury mill site for the $208-million biomass
cogeneration plant has received a steam turbine generator that will produce electricity.

According to an article from the Cape Breton Post, the plant will
be in operation during the first quarter of 2013, generate 60 MW of electricity and be able to power over 50,000 homes.

"We did hit a major milestone last week when we placed our steam
turbine and generator on its pedestals — so its final resting place — in
the steam turbine building at site,” said Roger Burton, NSPI’s senior
director for projects, technical and construction. “Once those pieces of equipment are in place, it allows some of the larger construction projects to start.”
