Feb. 3, 2017 - Nova Scotia-based Hefler Forest Products has sold its 3.7-megawatt biomass power plant in Middle Sackville, N.S., the first sale of its kind in Canada.

The sale of Hefler Forest Products is set to close Feb. 24.

The new owners, Hawthorne Capital and Katalyst Wind, are considering having a third party operate the sawmill on site.
