Blue Sphere Corporation (the company, Blue Sphere), a clean-tech independent power producer that develops, owns and manages alternative energy facilities globally, has announced that the 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 LLC, 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.
