Work continues on the RF-container. One major step was accomplished today, with the application of power. This event marks the culmination of weeks of trenching, cabling and installation work. The test certificates are now all in place and this afternoon, the final checks were performed before power was applied.
In this first picture, Dave King performs the final inspection of the switch boxes prior to activation.
And here, with the final switch, Dave King activates the final circuit and the RF-Container is energised! They now have mains power on the LOFAR Chilbolton site.
