A new $90-million bioenergy facility has started up in Saskatchewan—and helping the power plant reach its feedstock goals is a custom-built wood hog grinder from Rawlings Manufacturing.

With the help of technical experts from Italy, Germany, Montana and the province of Saskatchewan, the First Nation Meadow Lake Tribal Council (MLTC) in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan has now launched a state-of-the-art $90-million bioenergy facility.
The new power facility is producing enough energy to process the wood waste from their sawmill, power the bioenergy plant’s in-house facility (heat, lights and run the wood hog), provide power to 5,000 nearby city homes—and has enough energy left over to sell 6.6 megawatts to provincial utility, SaskPower Corporation.
