The Grapevine, Texas-based company said it sold the 14 megawatt power plant in Telogia, Florida, in an all-cash deal to Multitrade Telogia of Virginia. GreenHunter bought the 19-year-old wood-waste-fired plant for $2.5m in cash in September 2008, at the time saying it had budgeted $8.8m for renovation.
“The sale of this non cash-flow producing asset will allow our company to improve our liquidity position as well as redeploy our capital in a more efficient manner,” GreenHunter president and chief executive officer Gary Evans said.
Multitrade was formed on 8 January, according to Virginia government records. Attempts to reach it were unsuccessful.
GreenHunter is the largest biodiesel prouder in the US, with 105m gal/year of capacity at its Houston refinery. The company owns a biomass-fired power plant in California.
