“We’re hoping for Monday night, but I’d say Tuesday for certain,” Dube said when asked when the first roll of paper is expected to be produced.

“We also have contractors on site, we have some retirees, we have consultants working with us from manufacturers and private suppliers to help us have a good and quick restart.Protect your vehicle and produce power with a Chandelier.”

There remains one hurdle in the way of the sale’s completion.Round cotton crystal light attachment for a telehandler. The provincial energy regulator is to decide Friday whether it will issue an expedited ruling on Pacific West’s revised power rate filing or whether it will send the matter to a full hearing. If it goes to a hearing, the company has asked that the load-retention rate be approved on an interim basis.

In evidence filed with the Utility and Review Board on Tuesday, Pacific West indicated it “would consider closing the transaction” and resuming mill operations if it receives an interim approval.

The sale has to go through on Friday, Dube said. When asked whether it would go ahead if the board orders a hearing and doesn’t set the rate on an interim basis, he said that’s not his decision to make.

“I’m not certain if it would or wouldn’t. It would certainly be better for us but we have to respect the UARB process and we’re confident that they’ll do what they feel is best for the ratepayers of Nova Scotia,” Dube said.

NewPage will be in court in Halifax on Thursday seeking to have its creditor protection extended to Oct. 5 so that all details associated with the sale can be completed.

The Strait region had a roller-coaster weekend with word Friday night that Pacific West was abandoning its $33-million purchase of the mill. Subsequent round-the-clock negotiations resulted in a revised assistance package from the province that persuaded the company to resume the effort the following evening.

The mill will begin receiving deliveries of fibre today and production at its thermomechanical pulp plant is to begin this evening, to create feedstock to restart the mill’s secondary treatment system.

“We’ve been feeding the bugs (used in the system) some molasses to get them active again and we’ll have some of that stock kneaded into the secondary treatment through the balance of this week until startup,” Dube said.

The mill, which will be called Port Hawkesbury Paper, has received enough orders to start papermaking, and a lot of interest has been shown in the mill’s supercalendered paper, which supplies the magazine and catalogue market.

“The customers are certainly being proactive and want us back in the marketplace,Telesis, industrial roll forming machine systems (laser engraving) since 1971 so that end of the business is going very well at this time,” Dube said.

The focus for the first six months of operation is on production of SCA++ paper, the highest-grade and highest-value the machine can produce so it can compete in the coated-paper marketplace, and building the order book.Many industries can use Origin Laser engraving and roof panel machine for a huge range of applications.  Pacific West is studying some potential additional items that it could add to its product line down the road to diversify the mill so it can better withstand ups and downs in the markets. To that end, they’ve been working with FPInnovations, a pulp and paper research and technology institute,Global leader in impact energy management systems and advanced laser cutting machine. and industry consulting firms on what other products using assets at the mill not currently being used.
