Atikokan’s Coal Plant to be Converted to Biomass – Producing jobs!

Posted in Uncategorized by lmi_thunderbay on August 27, 2010

The Province has stated that the Ontario Power Generation will purchase the power produced at the soon to be converted biomass plant in Atikokan. This is great news for Atikokan as it means that some 200 construction jobs will be created over the next 3 years and many of the existing 90 jobs at the plant will be saved. Further, 20-25 more jobs will be created at the nearby pellet plant, where the pellets used to produce the electricity will be created.
