Update from ChNPP. You can see that the MD3200 (big yellow crane that was here to repair the damaged roof) will be leaving soon.



Some pictures and informations (in ukrainian) on a_s_k_e_t's blog. We learn that the two halves should be merged "soon", and also, the following picture provide some information about the mysterious pieces on the east side of the NSC. It seems they'll be used to raise the "doors" I mentioned earlier. I think there's a paragraph about it on the blog, but I don't speak ukrainian, so if anyone can translate...



And finally, a picture from icepick3000.

...
It is not ukrainian language, but russian one.
And yes, blogger writes about door that can be opened up, suspended on three hinges, and servo drives for this purpose.

Probably the door will be opened during moving of the Arch to final position, because of of the new wall that is already constructed and positioned before Sarcophagus.

Also from ChNPP, an article about work that is still required to complete the NSC. The completion date for that is march 2017. Here's a quick Google Translate:

- Engineering building, including decontamination station, fragmentation and packaging, sanitary locks, workshops and other technical facilities;

- Additional structures.

To ensure nuclear and radiation safety and general NSC and its efficient operation involving the minimum number of operating personnel provided for the establishment of the Integrated Management System NSC. It will consist of the following systems:

- The system of control of radiation safety;

- Seismic monitoring system;

- System status monitoring of building structures;

- Operating system support: ventilation system; water supply system; sewage system (including, of liquid radioactive waste); power supply system;

- Technological system of radioactive waste and fuel containing materials.

There will also be created of fire safety and physical security, network connection and mounted television. To ensure the dismantling of unstable structures will be mounted crane equipment.

Any pictures of the landfill they've been building nearby for the materials they remove from the reactor?

Is this sarcophagus made of lead? Which other material inhibits radiation?
