Located in beautiful Fort St. James, BC where outdoor recreation (such as water sports, fishing, biking, hiking, hunting, skiing and more) is in abundance and where home prices are affordable, BioNorth Energy is looking for 1st and 2nd Class Power Engineers to join the team.
BioNorth Energy, formerly the Veolia Fort St. James Green Energy Project, is a joint-venture partnership between the Arrow Group of Companies (Arrow), the Nak’azdli Development Corporation (NDC), the economic development arm of the Nak’azdli First Nation (Nak’azdli), and low-carbon infrastructure developer, Nexus PMG (Nexus).
The Energy Plant is a 40-megawatt biomass power generation facility which began commercial operation in late 2017, under a 30-year electricity purchase agreement (EPA) with BC Hydro.
Making use of forest biomass, such as biologs, wood waste and hog fuel to make electricity is a way for the Province to meet the energy objectives of its CleanBC plan and shift BC to a lower carbon economy. By combining the knowledge and complimentary skillsets of Arrow, the NDC and Nak’azdli, and Nexus PMG, we are ideally positioned to turn the plant into a successful energy producing facility.
Reporting to the Chief Power Engineer and working as part of our Operations Team, the Power Engineer will be responsible for the safe operation and maintenance of the power plant and related auxiliary equipment. In absence of the Chief Power Engineer, the Power Engineer will be capable of assuming responsibility for the operation. Our entire team focuses on creating a work environment where all employees work together to complete all tasks/meet challenges using a team-based approach.
