Non-executive director Angus McDonald has injected cash into Helius Energy in order to help it overcome short-term working capital problems.
Helius develops and operates biomass-fuelled renewable energy generation plants. Helius needs cash to finance further projects including one at Avonmouth.
McDonald invested £698,000 at 16p a share, thereby increasing his stake from 19.12% to 22.97%. He has also provided an unsecured loan of £302,000.
Keith Henry, Barclay Forrest and David Brocksom have stepped down from the board as part of a cost cutting exercise. Northland believes that this will save £150,000 a year. Former chief executive John Seed has been appointed chairman.
At 16.12p a share, up 2.5p, Helium is valued at £14.1m.
