A small gif of today's progress. I'll post a higher quality timelapse once the skidding is complete.

They said that sliding of the arch would take 5 days. But that sliding took only two days and then it stopped. What happened? Some kind of problem? (sorry for english)

I remember the schedule says it should be done by the end of the month. I'm sure they have other tasks that must be complete in between the times they are moving the arch. This is a very complex and delicate operation so there is no rush

The arch is once again moving this morning. I guess it's going all the way this time.

The skidding operation has finished! The arch has reached its final position, but work is far from over. A year is still required to complete the work and commission the NSC. And only after that, they'll be able to start dismantling the old sarcophagus and reactor.

Here's a timelapse of the whole skidding operation.

Chernobyl confinement: the story

Quote:
Chernobyl confinement: the story.




Quote:
The Chernobyl damaged reactor is now safely confined thanks to the word and dedication of the 10,000 employees of NOVARKA (50% VINCI Construction Grands Projets, leader, and 50% Bouygues Travaux Publics) since the contract was signed in 2007.

This project, stemming from the international ideas contest launched by Ukraine in 1992 and won by Campenon Bernard SGE (which later became VINCI Construction Grands Projets), allows both confinement and dismantling of the damaged reactor thanks to remote controlled tools installed inside the arch. The New safe Confinement has been built in front of the reactor, in a cleaned area, and then slid over 327 meters since the beginning of November 2016.

The inauguration of the NSC will take place tomorrow (29/11) at 10:00 GMT, and it'll be livestreamed here.

Also, here are a few panoramas from chernobylzone (before skidding).

And a picture from Vladimir Gerasimov.

Are they going to demolish the portion sticking out that didn't meltdown or how will they seal it on that end?

If you mean the part at the right of the ventilation stack in the picture in #558, it's the unit 3, and there's no plan for it other than simple decommission.
