In September, One Sky Forest Products announced its intention to build and operate a new oriented strandboard (OSB) operation at an existing Prince Albert, Saskatchewan mill site. One Sky Forest Products took a step forward on Tuesday (11-30-21) in bringing that operation to fruition with the announcement that it has signed an agreement with Paper Excellence, the company behind the restart of the local pulp mill.
The new agreement means One Sky will occupy approximately 10% of the existing property, and the two companies will share log storage areas and existing infrastructure, including electrical, natural gas, and rail lines. Both companies received softwood and hardwood fiber allocations from the Government of Saskatchewan earlier in the fall.
One Sky plans to begin construction on the new OSB plant in 2022, with a scheduled completion date in the fall of 2023.
