Canfor Pulp extends outage to repair RB

Canfor Pulp Products Inc. extended its scheduled maintenance outage on one production line at its Northwood NBSK pulp mill in Prince George, BC.

The outage was to enable necessary tube replacements in its No. 5 recovery boiler to rectify damage discovered during the inspections. Based on a preliminary review, Canfor estimated the extended downtime at 70-80 days with a reduction in pulp production of 60,000-70,000 tonnes, as well as higher associated maintenance costs.

Canfor Pulp continued to operate the second production line over this period. The temporary outage was not expected to have a material effect on the financial condition of the company.
