What happened to the progress percentage of the west section? It's 10% less than the last week. Problems?

Those progress percentages are the ratio of weight of assembled metal / weight of metal when completed. Since last week, the weight of metal when completed mysteriously gained over 700 tons, which means even though they installed 200 tons of steel this week, overall percentage is down. If I had to guess, I'd say those 700 extra tons come from the cladding (that would have been missing from previous weight of metal when completed), but it's not the first time such change in numbers occurs, so no need to worry about it.

An article from Nuclear Engineering International. Here are the most interesting parts:
  • On 28 March the first skidding operation of the Chernobyl new safe confinement is scheduled to take place
  • The new half arch is scheduled to be lifted in May, September and November 2014
  • The schedule is currently being revised, but is likely to be a year or two late
  • "It is clear that the funding committed in 2011 will not be sufficient to complete the project...A revised cost estimate should be completed in a few weeks"
Obviously not all good news, but we could the the first half slidding in just a few hours.

Ok, thank you for the explanation.

According to VIUR (very reliable source), slidding could start today. And looking at the webcams, it looks like it's about to happen.

Update from ChNPP. The sliding should be done tomorrow. I'll make a timelapse of the complete operation a few hours after its completion.

Two pictures from ChNPP.



Two pictures from VIUR (if you look closely, you'll see part of the Potain MD3200, including the cab).



A timelapse from myself.



And a gif in case you're too lazy to click the video.

VIUR posted some very intersting pictures on the Ukrainian thread, including the MD3200 and a new render of the final structure and base.

That crane is HUGE! That's probably why it's taking so long to assemble it.

The MD3200 has the highest capacity of all Potain tower cranes. Very few tower cranes actually can lift as much as this one.

More informations from VIUR: two new cranes will be assembled for building the "technological building", making it a total of 3. One is being set up right now. Also, more employees are expected to work on site "soon", so things should speed up.

More great pictures from VIUR. I'm posting them on multiple messages to avoid overloading the page with images.

Lift started! Earlier than scheduled, but you still can watch it on the webcam. By the way, today marks the 28th anniversary of the accident.

Also, they started pouring the foundations of the technological building. And the third crane is up.

Pictures from ChNPP.
