Update from ChNPP, announcing that the work on the "end walls" is completed. Those are two massive concrete walls built inside the turbine hall that will seal the area under the NSC.

They also posted a video about this subject. All the following videos are in ukrainian.



A video about the final skidding operation.



And another video.

As rákos said, the old one was dismantled in 2013. The one currently in place was installed in 2011 to prepare for the NSC. The NSC east wall will stop just near it.

ChNPP published a new website for the NSC. This picture offers an interesting view of what the reactor will look like once the decommissioning is over. Another image contains information about the final skidding operation: it should be over by november 29th (many thanks to Bohdan who translated it).

More pictures of the end walls, from ub.com.ua.

It's part of the Industrial Complex for Solid Radioactive Waste Management (ICSRM). You can see more of it in this video.

Update from ChNPP. They are getting ready for the final skidding operation.

Inside the garage for the bridge crane trolleys.



You can see one bridge crane hoist behind tested, and the Mobile Tool Platform hanging.



Inside the roof.

They also added the stairs next to the ventilation stack.

One thing is for sure: the arch will be in place over the reactor on november 29th. Some media outlets are reporting that the skidding started on november 3rd, but the arch hasn't moved yet. I'm also hearing november 12th as a potential date, or early next week.

The skidding operation will span over multiple days, and I'll post an update as soon as I have accurate information about the starting date.

The exclusion zone will be closed from november 12th to 29th due to the skidding operation (source). That could confirm the 12th as the starting date, but I'm still waiting for an official announcement.

It's a fairly difficult information to find. The NSC is financed by the Chernobyl Shelter Fund, which itself is financed by over 40 countries, since the 90s. Multiple donors meeting happened to raise funds since then, so it's hard to keep track of which country donated how much. But based on the very few articles I managed to find, Russia pleged at least $90 millions to the fund, which received around $1.5 billions overall.

The skidding operation hasn't started yet. Official word is that it will start "in the coming days" and "mid-november".

In the meantime, here's a video and two pictures, including one of the wall inside the turbine hall.

I've been wondering for a long time, will the chimney finally be removed or will it stop in front of it??

The ventilation stack you see in the video actually is a new one, and was installed in 2011. The old one was removed in 2013 (ref).

I used my amazing MS Paint skills to draw the following, which should answer your question. The red line is where the NSC will connect with the existing building (so add a few meters to get the structure's actual reach). The blue area is where the old ventilation stack was. It's been designed so that the arch will stop before touching the new ventilation stack.
