Indigenous biomass heat and power plant lands $35 million from Ottawa – Northern Ontario Business

Whitesand First Nation’s Bio-Economy Centre project will heat communities, provide power for local forestry operations

Ottawa is investing $35 million for Whitesand First Nation to proceed with its proposed heat and power facility.

The plant, to be run by the Sagatay Co-Generation Limited Partnership, will be fuelled by locally sourced wood for produce energy for three northwestern Ontario communities.

Once built, the 6.5-megawatt facility will reduce Whitesand’s dependence on diesel fuel for heat and electricity.

It will connect to a local micro-grid and provide power to the neighbouring communities of Whitesand, Armstrong and Collins. It will also provide power to a new wood pellet plant and a wood merchandising yard, according to a federal government news release.
