Thank you for the picture. There is still one block to dismantle before the crane can leave.

Article on the BBC News site about the New Safe Confinement and the recent removal of the chimney:

Quote:
Work began in recent days to remove, bit by bit, the giant chimney protruding from the Chernobyl nuclear power station. It's one small part of a mammoth engineering project, now nearing completion, designed to slash the risk of another major release of radioactivity.
Massive and glittering in the weak winter sunshine, a half-built arch looms over Chernobyl's decaying industrial landscape of cooling towers and power lines.
One of the biggest engineering projects in history, it has been likened to a gigantic metal igloo, built to seal off hundreds of tons of nuclear fuel and dust buried inside reactor number four, which in 1986 blew up and burned for 10 days.
Everything about the project is epic: the size, the 1.5bn euro (£1.2bn) cost, the technical problems of working on a radioactive building site.
Full story here - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-25086097

It'a amazing how quickly the forest took over the abandoned streets of Pripyat. It's been less than 30 years and there is a canopy.

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development released (high res) pictures taken during the last few months. Here are a few:

And while I'm here, a new tower crane is being installed for the construction of the "technological building" (future entry point of the NSC).

This is a fascinating thread... Incredible to think that the Chernobyl disaster is still at the forefront of some peoples agenda. Bravo to all those involved; the designers, the engineers, the tradesmen and indeed the government for commissioning this vital project. I just cannot believe the environmental impact this must be having, not only the original event, but the construction of this too... The amount of concrete is mind blowing! A great example of risk management though, and I hope it is as successful as envisaged.

Thanks for the photo updates, this was a very interesting read. - G
