Columbia Pulp anticipates next week startup


September 12, 2019

LYONS FERRY—Columbia Pulp stands on the threshold of its facility startup with a “go live” date the week of Sept. 15, According to Columbia Bio-Polymers Product Manager K.C. Kuykendall.

Kuykendall said the Lyons Ferry facility has transitioned the site safety program from the general contractor (PCI) to the Columbia Pulp program and oversight. In addition, the Pomeroy pilot plant has temporarily delayed operations as of the end of August in preparation for the Lyons Ferry facility startup.

“All operational maintenance staff are reporting to the Lyon’s Ferry facility for operational readiness review and training. We have increased our employee headcount to about 100 folks currently and continue to attract more talent as we approach operations,” Kuykendall said.

“As we march towards this long-awaited startup milestone, the entire Columbia Pulp team is feeling the excitement of the pending launch. We are grateful for the continued community partnerships we have and look forward to the transition from construction to operations.”
