FSC has completed a feasibility study on cogeneration, recommending a 20MW capacity each at the Rarawai and Lautoka Mills and a 5MW capacity at the Labasa Mill. The proposals are now being discussed with FEA for finalization. Currently, FSC is producing electricity for each own consumption and exports the surplus to FEA during the crushing season. The proposed cogeneration at the Rarawai and Lautoka Mills has an estimated capital cost of F$60 million whilst the cogeneration at the Labasa Mill is part of the mill up-grading program. FSC is presently exploring options to fund the project. The target date for cogeneration to come on line was September 2007 i.e. three months after the completion of the mill up-grading program.

Tropic Wood Industries has also started with cogeneration by using biomass i.e. wood waste. At present 3MW is produced by the company for its consumption and export to the national grid. This would be increased to 11MW by mid 2007, as sufficient wood wastes are produced for the fuel. The company has plans to build small power plant once it develops its biomass plantations. Tropic Wood Industries has signed an MOU with FEA.

FEA has identified four strategic sites in Savusavu and Seaqaqa area for setting up 1 – 2 MW biomass plants. Another plan is planned for Waivunu Sawmill in Deuba adjacent to the Fiji Hardwood Corporation (FHC) factory with a capacity of 4 – 5 MW.
