According to VIUR, there are problems with the foundations of one of the lifting towers. This is delaying the final lift.

Once again from VIUR, final lift started 2 hours ago. Only a few inches for now, they're checking everything's ok.

Timelapse of the final lift. Also available in WebM (better quality). For some reason the video below stops before the end, so here's the direct link.

Also, since it's been a year since the webcam was installed, I made a timelapse to show what's been done since october 2013 in a single minute.



It's also available in WebM fomat, which is higher quality. And if you're in a hurry, here's a quicker (10s) timelapse.

Update from ChNPP. They are planning to move the east half on november 25th, so the schedule provided a few weeks ago appears to be right.

Update from ChNPP. The two halves are almost merged, it will take a few more weeks to finalize it.

And here's a timelapse of that day.

The current sarcophagus is crumbling and was generally fairly poorly constructed. The roof structure that the sarcophagus was built on is unstable and might collapse that ever i seen.

'Cause that's a big freakin' wall.

I could understand building it around reactor 4, but it looks like they don't want to take any chances with the whole building.

The construction on this project is just crazy impressive.

That's the turbine hall. As its name suggest, it's where the turbines of all the reactors are, so it spans along the 4 reactors. It's not new, and it's not in itself part of the sarcophagus, even though it is partially covered by it (just left of the crane in the picture you quoted).

The EBRD also approved 350M€ of additional funding, which means the project should be able to get the 615M€ currently needed, with help from G7 and other countries.
