The majority of large steel work in the conversion is complete. The new lab spaces, hold access, and pilot house extension are in place. The vessel will be moved this week to a location up in the harbor better suited for the sandblasting that will now take place. Because of the strict enforcement of environmental laws for sandblasting, 100% containment is required so most other work will stop aboard the vessel once the blasting commences. Offsite fabrication of the A-frames, etc. will continue.
Meanwhile much of our time is now spent in the details of the project, where careful consideration is given for the layout and installation of all the piping, wiring, lab space layout, lighting, heating and ventilation. All fuel tanks have had their final cleaning and are now sealed prior to the sandblasting.
