17:00 Installation Complete. 16:00The installation of the second section of the upper platform quickly follows. This is also bolted to the supports and the handrail neatly slots together. 15:30The first section of the upper platform is lowered onto the support brackets. The platform is then bolted to the supports. 14:30 The primary gangway for accessing the top of the reactor is assembled ready for hoisting and installation. 11:30Steel supports are added to the body to support the access gangways. 09:30 The foundations are drilled and the reactor is chemically anchored in place. 09:22 The Reactor is lowered into its final position completing its 260km journey from Newry to Kilconnell. 09:18 The Reactor is fully upright and ready for positioning on the concrete foundations. The Crane rotates to position the Reactor above its foundations. 09:17 The Reactor is rotated in mid-air by simultaneously raising the top and lowering the bottom until the Reactor is full upright. 09:16 The Reactor is raised from both ends until it is clear of the trailer and the truck can pull out from under the reactor. 09:15 The chains are connected to the reactor and all staff are cleared from the site. 08:45 All pre-lift checks are completed. 08:15 All attendees participate in a safety briefing. The method statement for the day is reviewed and signed by all participants. A toolbox talk highlighting specific risks and dangers to be aware of for the duration of the day’s operations are discussed. 08:00 Dead on schedule the reactor makes it to site. The two cranes with a combined lifting capacity of 115 tonne are already in position and set up. 07:52 Having navigated the local roads, reversing down the site access road is not much of a challenge. 07:40 After a preliminary walk of the route the drivers tackle the task of reversing the 800 metres to the site access road. The traffic management plan is activated and the traffic wardens hold and direct traffic as required. Steerable rear axles on the trailer ensure the truck can navigate the route as in certain spots there is only 250mm clearance on either side of the reactor. 06:30 The reactor arrives in the Kilconnell town delivered by James Quinn having been loaded the evening before at JK Fabrications manufacturing facility in Newry Co. Down.
