Conifex Power

Completed in May 2015, this 36 MW biomass power plant located near Conifex’s Mackenzie, BC sawmill site will produce 230 gigawatt (GWh) hours of net energy per year to over 20,000 British Columbia homes throughout our 20 year Electricity Purchase Agreement and Related Load Displacement Agreement with British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority.

When building then Biomass Power Plant, Conifex uniquely integrated existing infrastructure from an idled newsprint facility with new equipment, including a Dresser Rand steam turbine generator system and a best-in-class fuel storage facility. In doing so, we were able to substantially reduce building costs, with a total investment of just CAD$103.5 million.

Fuel will be provided by Mackenzie Forest Products (FP), a Conifex company responsible for sourcing, processing, and delivering approximately 172,000 oven dry tons (ODT) per year over a 20 year period.

By utilizing the residuals and former waste products from our forest products business, we are optimizing the full value of sawlog fibre, strengthening our traditional lumber business, and generating clean energy that contributes to British Columbia’s greenhouse gas reduction goals.
