LAS VEGAS, July 08, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP) is pleased to release June’s video update, for shareholders, on the progress of its hemp decortication facility in Spring Hope, North Carolina. The video update can be seen on www.HempIncPresents.com. David Schmitt, COO of Hemp, Inc.’s subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC says the company is on schedule for getting the hemp decortication plant operational.
As shown on the latest video, the installation of the conduit has been completed in order to install the new transformer. The transformer is needed to get the 3-phase power that is required of the hemp decortication plant. The video also shows the shareholders exactly where the conduit and transformer are located and the 8-foot deep hole that was dug to hold the conduit. As explained in the video update, the transformer sits over the top of the conduits. The conduits go into the building and connect to the new switch gear and then connects to the Temafa control panels.
“We have a team of skilled workers helping to keep things on schedule. One of our top priorities in our development efforts is to ensure our shareholders understand each step of the plant’s progress in relation to what the end result will yield. Our American hemp farmers will have an industrial, commercial processing facility for their crops, thereby creating economic stability and sustainable resources. It’s exciting to see history in the making,” said Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP).
Schmitt said, “We are ensuring we cross every ‘T’ and dot every ‘I’. Our hemp decortication plant will make a huge difference in North Carolina, and we couldn’t be more excited about the fact that North Carolina is beginning to see change in its laws on hemp.” Schmitt continued saying, “We are video recording every step of the process along the way.”
The video even shows workers pouring the concrete slab into a 12 x 18-ft area that later housed the 100-horse powered air compressor. The 100-horsepower air compressor will supply compressed air to the decortication line. Shareholders also get an up close look at the structural breakers. The “teeth” have been welded and sharpened to its correct size. Thus far, “all the plumbing is complete and is piped throughout the building and is being attached to the machinery,” says Schmitt. “Soon, everything will be positioned, wired and anchored to the floor.”
Even though Perlowin has been able to monitor the plant’s progress with the high definition cameras installed in the decortication plant, the CEO will be in North Carolina through the weekend to meet with the crew and get a first-hand look at the progress being made.
“There are only five decorticators of this magnitude in the world and we have one of them. This hemp decortication equipment is going to make its rightful return to the American hemp landscape. Our American hemp farmers will have an industrial, commercial processing facility for their crops,” said Perlowin.
“We plan to process the 5,000,000 pounds of kenaf that we currently have on hand. The 150 acres of kenaf, planted this year, will also be processed at Hemp, Inc.’s decortication plant.” Hemp, Inc. executives are also excited about their plans to launch Hemp, Inc.’s new CBD product line.
