Since the beginning of Prodesa, the company has always opted for a strong internationalization of its brand, expanding its borders and bringing solutions from pellet plants all over the world. Therefore, the company is especially proud to communicate the success of the implementation of our latest project: Skeena BioEnergy in Terrace, B.C.

This is the first complete pelletizing plant designed and implemented entirely by Prodesa in Canada, a big case of success that has followed the turnkey model. Thanks to this new plant, chips, barks and other byproducts from Skeena Sawmill are used as raw material for the manufacture of industrial pellets destined for the international markets of Korea and Japan.

Prodesa is currently working on more projects in Canada, including the facilities of Barrette and JD Irving, which will consolidate its establishment in this market.
