Tembec’s ongoing green energy projects include installing a cogeneration power facility at its operations in Temiscaming, Quebec. A 61.54 MW Steam Turbine and Generator were installed on a concrete pedestal thirty-five feet above ground. The 110 ton turbine and 105 ton generator were offloaded from railcars onto Western’s hydraulic trailers (SPMTs) and traveled approximately one kilometre to the new facility. Western’s lifting apparatus utilized a combination of strand jacks and gantry jacks to lift and travel the turbine and generator into position.
