NANAIMO, BC, July 30, 2013 (Local News) -After approximately six months of construction, Harmac pulp mill's new $45-million electrical generation plant is completed and is in its final testing stages.

The generation plant is expected to be connected to B.C. Hydro's provincial power grid within the next two weeks.

Nanaimo Forest Products, which owns the mill, and B.C. Hydro signed a 15-year agreement last year that will see Harmac sell approximately 15 megawatts from the 25-megawatt plant to the Crown corporation, while using the rest to help meet the mill's power demands.
