RCMP are investigating an incident at Canfor’s Intercontinental Pulp Mill that has resulted in a loss of power to the mill. Canfor spokesperson Corrine Stavness says “it appears this was caused by interference with the power systems that supply the mill.”
Stavness says power disruption occurred Friday morning and doesn’t involve BC Hydro. The impact is solely on Canfor infrastructure and operations.
Canfor says more information will be released later, however personnel are concentrating their efforts on getting the mill restarted as quickly as possible and as safely as possible. Staves says there is no timeline for the mill to be restarted at this point.
