Husky Energy will have to upgrade safety and install solar panels to offset emissions from the 2018 explosion at its Superior refinery. The projects are part of a proposed settlement filed Friday in federal court.

Husky, which does business as Superior Refining Co. in Wisconsin, will make safety upgrades to its hydrofluoric acid (HF) tank under the agreement with state and federal justice officials. Concerns about an HF release prompted a temporary evacuation for some of the city’s 27,000 residents during the aftermath of the explosion April 26, 2018.
