The St. Felicien cogeneration Project is a 23 MW woodwaste fired cogeneration facility that provides a clean and useful solution to the disposal of sawmill waste. By disposing of the woodwaste, the St. Felicien Cogeneration project will be producing electricity to be sold to Hydro-Quebec under the terms of a 25-year power purchase agreement, steam to Alliance Forest Products' sawmill for its wood dryers under a long-term agreement, waste ash for agricultural soil improvements and residual hot water for agro-industrial energy requirements. The project has therefore been designed to optimize the use of the thermal capacity of the woodwaste while promoting local industrial developments.
The project was developed and is owned by a partnership formed of Enel Green Power Canada, Inc., the Societe Generale de Financement and Societe en commandite Centrale Thermique SF, the local project intitiators. The total project cost is $63 million (CAN).
