Update from ChNPP.



Various (not so fresh) news:
- Project completion date has been pushed back to 2017
- The initial funding was not enough, and the project needs more money to be completed
- The work on the turbine roof (wit the MD3200) is suspended. Rumor says it is due to lack of money. (from VIUR)
- And has you can see on the pictures, cladding is still going on on the eastern half of the arch

How are the construction workers building this? Are they wearing radioactive suits, wait, no suits.

Fascinating thread.

Well, if they are running out of money they can always ask Greenpeace for a donation. According to the latest figures, it has assets of around US$350 million, even allowing for some currency trading losses (yes folks for all of its moralising about capitlaism, it is as capitalist as they come!) so it can probably afford to throw a few bob at this especially given how much it hates nukes so heres a chance to do something actually constructive...

Going to be interesting when they actually move the arch into place.

For the work on the arch, the area (ground) has been cleaned. It is also at a relatively safe distance to the reactor so that special suits are not needed. For the work on foundations, they are using special suits. Same for the work on the technological building, where they also built a temporary shield wall.

Every worker is also equipped with two dosimeters, and after each day of work, management checks that their radiation exposure is within an acceptable range. If that's not the case, the worker isn't allowed on site to avoid any more exposure.

It's still more dangerous than your average construction job. But it's nowhere near the conditions that workers were exposed during the construction of the first sarcophagus

The G7 issued a statement after their last meeting regarding the financing issues. So they're aware of the situation, and hopefully money will be found.

In other news, some pictures thanks to Dmitry Birin (via mrsashko and Bohdan Astro).

Amazing project, but I have several questions about it:

How many more arches need to be build in total?
Completion date? (approximate)
How is the structure going to be moved towards the reactor?

2 Arches Total

Baring lack of funding and/or escalation in the Ukraine Russia Conflict... a year or 2 from completion of the structure. There isn't yet funding for the dismantling work (unless something has changed on that front).

These Videos should answer all questions about the project, how the arches move, etc. These were all posted previously in the thread.

Work on the New Safe Confinement at the site started in late 2010 and, according to the current schedule, is expected to be completed by 2017
And to add to soulcapn videos, here's one with some details on lifting/skidding procedures.

From ChNPP: the hole in the roof of the turbine hall has been closed. The MD3200 did its job and should be leaving soon.
