The tooling returns

Some of the tools that were used to install the LOFAR HBA tiles at the KAIRA site were provided by ASTRON (the Netherlands Foundation for Radio Astronomy). These tools move from site to site as the stations are rolled out across Europe. Now that the installation work is complete, the equipment used in the operation needs to returned.

The unfolding station, generators, tool boxes and spare parts are loaded onto the return lorry.
