Great Northern Paper, Millinocket, ME
Project Type: Paper Mill
Service performed: Equipment dismantlement and demolition
JDS has been contracted to continue the deconstruction and asset recovery work at the Millinocket mill which had been begun by the prior contractor, and is at varying stages. The scope of the work includes demolition of selected structures, including the digester building, plus the dismantlement of equipment. Existing railroad lines are being utilized in the removal of recyclables and debris, while the material used for backfill will be downsized concrete and brick from the building demolition process. Buildings without basements will remain as slab on grade with any basement level slabs perforated for drainage prior to backfilling. Separation of structures is being performed using mechanical means.
