Pinnacle makes changes to improve air quality
Pinnacle Renewable Energy in Williams Lake has a new stack that is 45 feet taller than the one it replaced.
Eighteen months ago after some brainstorming with the Ministry of Environment the company put forward a proposal to improve air quality in the area of the plant.
“A dispersion modelling study was completed and described the parameters required in order to improve air quality during poor meteorological conditions,” said plant manager Ron Myhre. “After the parameters were known then an engineering company was retained to redesign the plant discharge stack and foundation to support the new structure.”
The construction was completed in December of 2013.
“So far we are pleased with the improvement to this point,” Myhre said.
