September 16, 2013, Cocagne, NB – MHG Systems and ACFOR
today announced a Letter of Intent to implement MHG’s complete ERP solution for
bioenergy production processes.

The parties aim to kick-off cooperation in support of
ACFOR’s ongoing expansion in supplying, managing and constructing forest biomass-fired
heat plants in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. MHG’s Biomass Manager
will be used to track and manage feedstock from stump to boiler.

The system is specifically designed for electronic tracking
of location and quality data, as well as sending digital work orders and work
delivery confirmations. This is in addition to features that will enable monitoring
of quality and quantity of biomass and increase megawatt output per unit of biomass
harvested and transported. 

“Heat boilers and wood suppliers need accurate and scalable
capacity-planning and monitoring tools to bring biomass from the source to heat
plants. By using the latest technologies and methods, our work is done in a
timely and effective manner,” said Mathieu LeBlanc, CEO ACFOR. 

According to a 2012 feedstock assessment by the University of Moncton, the
province of New Brunswick alone has the potential to produce 463 MW of
electricity and 1111 MW of thermal heat based purely on forest residuals.
