Final Opportunity to Purchase Turnkey Trae Fuels Pellet and Chip Facility


The Trae-Fuels is a fully operational production facility configured to produce wood pellets used for home heating and as an alternative in power generation. Just 40 miles from Fredericksburg, Virginia, the facility is strategically located near the ports of Richmond, Norfolk, and Portsmouth. In addition, its situation on the East coast provides plentiful, sustainable, and cost-effective feedstock.

Trae-Fuels consists of a full-scale chipping operation with rail loadouts and 700 feet of chip conveyance. The main pelleting plant has two chip dryers, a 600-ton main hammermill, four 500 horsepower Bliss pelleting mills, and a fully automated Hamer bagging operation. It also features three-car rail siding and outdoor storage for up to 20,0000 tons of product (bagged on pallets) with a placard capacity of 130,000 tons annually.

Sealed bid offers are due by July 31, 2020. Inspection is by appointment through July 25.

This is the final opportunity to purchase the Trae Fuels Wood Pellet and Chip Facility. Should an acceptable sealed bid offer not be received by July 31, 2020, an auction of the company’s M&E will proceed on a piecemeal, “as is, where is” basis with lots start closing on August 20, 2020.
