BUCKSPORT, ME, May 3, 2011 (Bangor Daily News) -The Verso Paper Co. mill is gearing up to start construction of its $40 million upgrade of the No. 8 biomass boiler and to install a new steam turbine at the mill.

The company ceremoniously broke ground on the project last November, but the bulk of the construction work will be done this year beginning in June, according to Verso spokesman Bill Cohen.

"There's a lot of planning and engineering work going on, but the physical construction work inside the mill will resume in June," Cohen said Monday.
