Irving Pulp & Paper invests in woodyard in New Brunswick, Canada

CANADA (News release) -- The woodyard at Irving Pulp & Paper in west Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, is reaching new heights in technological advancement with a C$110-million (approx. $81 million) project to update how the site receives and stores woodchips.

Currently underway, the upgrade includes the installation of a new automated stacker reclaimer that is the tallest of its kind in the world. This technology "stacks" woodchips into one large pile, while the reclaimer function removes the woodchips from the pile to be used in the kraft pulp making process.

This automated machinery will improve safety at the site while enhancing quality and reliability.

The woodyard project, which is anticipated to reach completion in 2025, will employ an additional 150 skilled workers from 26 local contractor companies.

The site of Irving Pulp & Paper (Union Point), has been used for mill operations since the 1800s. Irving Pulp & Paper has undergone many capital investments over the years, most recently a new $300 million state-of-the-art pulp dryer. The mill now directly employs over 380 full-time employees and over 85 local contractors.
