Harmac president Levi Sampson said the 25-megawatt plant should be completed and selling electricity to B.C. Hydro as scheduled by next summer.
Nanaimo Forest Products, which owns the mill, and B.C. Hydro signed a 15-year agreement earlier this year for the turbo-generation plant to produce enough green electricity to light up 17,000 homes and add it to the province's power grid. The building project is currently providing 85 full-time construction and other technical jobs.
