US: CEA producer shares progress on greenhouses out of three different states

CEA producer Local Bounti has shared an update on three of their facilities out of Georgia, Texas, and Washington.

Byron, Georgia Facility Progress
The Company finished the integration of its Stack zones that comprise Phase 1-C in early October 2023. With this project reaching completion, the Company's Stack & Flow Technologyâ„¢ system is now fully functional. "During the integration process, we also took the opportunity to redesign its workflows and optimize its operations to account for the larger footprint (expanded from three to six acres of greenhouse) and the 40% greater capacity that is being generated by the Stack system," the Local Bounti team explains.

Mount Pleasant, Texas Facility Progress
The Company began installation of the Stack zones and greenhouse growing systems in the third quarter of 2023 and continues to expect operations to commence later in the fourth quarter of 2023. "The addition of this new facility in northeast Texas is expected to fortify Local Bounti's distribution in markets across Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Kansas, and Missouri. Further, the facility is designed to provide additional capacity to meet existing demand from Local Bounti's direct relationships with blue-chip retailers and distributors throughout the region," they point out.

Pasco, Washington Facility Progress
The greenhouse structure is now complete, and overhead and underground infrastructure work is progressing. When complete, the facility will be comprised of three acres of greenhouse that will be supported by multiple Stack zones. The facility will help bolster the Company's distribution capabilities in the Pacific Northwest and is still expected to commence operations early in the first quarter of 2024, which reflects the Company's decision to stagger construction to accommodate the commissioning of its Texas facility in the fourth quarter of 2023.
