NANAIMO, BC, Oct. 12, 2012 (Local News) -The construction of the foundations for Harmac Pacific's new $45-million electrical-generation plant is almost completed and workers are expected to begin building the housing for the turbine in November.

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.
