A REVITALISED $2 billion Penola pulp mill project will be one of the biggest infrastructure investments in South Australian history, creating 260 jobs and adding more than $500 million to the economy a year.
The project is back on track under the guidance of high-profile Adelaide businessman Greg Boulton and construction could start as early as the middle of next year.
Mr Boulton - the former president of the Port Adelaide Football Club - has been appointed chair- man of the company behind the project, which would employ 260 people full-time and up to 1600 during construction.
$2b mill will revitalise THE Commonwealth Bank has come on board to help raise capital to build the mill and former Amcor Australasia chief operating officer Don Matthews has joined Penola Pulp Mill Pty Ltd as chief executive.
It is good news for the forestry industry in the state's South-East, which has been rocked by the failure of large forestry companies Timbercorp and Great Southern Plantations in 2009, and the loss of 130 jobs at Carter Holt Harvey's Nangwarry mill in February.
