This news release is part of our ongoing update regarding the construction and completion of our commercialized pilot plant. We are happy to report that construction is ongoing with our pilot plant and the following items have been completed within the facility:
- A state-of-the-art security, access, and networking system has been installed in the building and is functioning well allowing us to control our site to the standard that is required for a facility of this magnitude.
- The month of January was a very productive and important for the Operations team. We achieved a milestone by completing the initial training of our 11 new operations personnel. The senior staff has been working diligently to ensure the new staff successfully completes their safety and standard operating procedure training programs. A well educated and safety minded operations staff will be key to achieving all our production goals and targets, while maintaining an incident free workplace.
- Full staff occupancy has commenced with the completion of related necessary workspace facilities which are vital for day-to-day operations. These include items such as showers, washrooms, and breakroom facilities. Having these items completed allows for a more efficient use of our space which includes having additional contractors on site while following the COVID-19 protocols and guidelines outlined by the government.
Management continues to monitor the impact and any delays that may result from the ongoing and everchanging global environment. We continue to adjust to new rules and regulations during the buildout of our plant. Industrial construction is ongoing and progressing well with no incidents to report.
