Update by Joan Tatters


Jason and the team have been taking advantage of the great weather.........

  • Otterburn is about complete, all the final modifications are done and now just going through the final testing before everything goes into service
  • Rochester is progressing along nicely, the base slab was poured yesterday in preparation of the new building. The team are continuing with concrete slabs for the new electrial kiosk, the genrator slab and CO2 kiosk. Then they can start the pipework and ductwork.

Here are a few photos.
