Hello. We achieved another one of our project milestones this week. We lifted the surge vessels into their final positions.

This crane lift was carried out in two phases. We lifted the vessels onto trailers and transported them to the second lifting location.

We lifted the 14 tonne vessels over a building and onto the reinforced concrete reception slab

The two vessels have been secured into their final positions. The mechanical and electrical fit-out will start later this week
