Conifex Timber Inc. (“Conifex”) announced that it has successfully recommissioned operations at its power plant in Mackenzie, British Columbia and began producing electricity at normalized rates following the previously disclosed disruption caused by damage to the power plant’s turbine.

“We appreciate how our power plant team was able to identify the malfunction of the turbine well ahead of the customary maintenance schedule. The team’s tireless efforts allowed us to overcome supplier and manufacturer challenges and ensured the successful recommencement of operations,” said Ken Shields, Chairman and CEO.
