Governor Inslee Congratulates NW Innovation Works and the Port of Kalama!

Thursday, August 6, 2015 - 9:45pm

It was a beautiful day yesterday at the Port of Kalama as Gov. Inslee oversaw the signing of the construction agreement between NW Innovation Works (NWI) and Johnson-Matthew Technologies to provide ultra low emission reforming technology to the $1.8 billion methanol manufacturing facility. The CEDC began working on this project in collaboration with the Port, Chinese officials and many other partners in the Fall of 2013. It is rewarding to see the incredible progress that has been made due to the dedication of NWI, the Port, the State and Cowlitz County. The project is projected to bring 1,000 construction jobs and over 200 family wage jobs to the Port and Cowlitz County. Fun to celebrate the progress!!!
