After temporary suspension of construction last year due to COVID-19, the rebuild process at the Husky Energy refinery got a major boost Friday, Jan. 22, when the vacuum tower was put into place.

The tower, which is about 125 feet long and 36 feet wide, is a key component in the distillation process. It arrived in Superior in November via barge.
