Blue Sphere presses ahead with North Carolina-based waste-to-energy facility
Blue Sphere Corp., a US clean-tech independent power producer, announced that its joint venture waste-to-energy facility under construction in Charlotte, North Carolina, is nearing completion.
In 2014, the company entered into a joint venture to develop, construct and operate a biogas facility in Charlotte, North Carolina, under the management of a third party.
In recent weeks, the joint venture's EPC contractor, Auspark, issued a report stating that the facility is currently going through the testing phases needed for commissioning the CHPs (engines) and a team of experienced engineers arrived from Italy to "White Test" the equipment and the components necessary for the facility to start generating electricity.
The "White Test" is performed without feeding any waste into the system to ensure that the respective components are properly operating, receiving electricity and connected to the controlling system. The "White Test" process is designed to test all of the components of the facility.
"We are very excited for the Charlotte facility to be entering its final stages of development. We look forward to seeing this amazing facility become operational. We will release a similar update about our Rhode Island facility as well as other updates shortly," said Shlomi Palas, the company's CEO.
