PICS: Under construction, beyond cool

Last week, we toured the progress inside our $170 million Renewable Energy Facility. Here are some of the latest photos.

The building houses equipment that will generate 25% of the plant’s electricity while conserving resources and reducing pollution. It is scheduled to go online this summer.

One
of three fluidized-bed incinerators, each one about 60 feet tall.
They’re called fluidized beds because heated sand blows around inside
the base like a liquid. The incinerators burn solid waste known as biosolids.

Overcast today, but in the sun, the front of this building gleams and it can be seen from nearby I-77.

Our own Mike Uva records an interview with Construction Manager Tom Vasel.

Typical safety signage on much of the equipment being installed throughout the building.

Each of the three incinerators is lined with 130 tons of this brick. Every brick is numbered to ensure it is placed properly.

Dials and switches. A very retro look inside a new-technology facility.
Two hearts, one love: Clean water.
