In 2014 Veolia constructed a 40 MW biomass facility in Merritt, BC; this is one of the largest biomass facilities in North America. The Merritt facility will consume 307,000 metric tons of biomass a year, converting sawmill and logging waste from the British Columbia forestry industry, and trees killed by the mountain pine beetle epidemic into electricity.
FRPD was contracted to create a large 3-sided chip storage for this new facility. The scope included the supply and installation of steel piles and timber lagging.
