Grids leaving the site

As we reported Sunday, the remaining LBA grids have been packed for transport from the KAIRA site back to Sodanklyä Geophysical Observatory. A total of 4 packs of grids were made. These were picked up by a forestry lorry (the sort used for moving logs) last Friday.

The crane at the back looked quite spindly... a bit like a  giant insect. Yet it had no trouble putting the grids in place.

The last one is placed. They were then tied down and got on their way. (Photo: D. McKay-Bukowski)

They were then taken from the site... which is looking pretty smart now. Nearly all the construction material have been cleared away and the grounds are clear from stockpiles. We're nearly ready for the official opening and site inspection on Thursday!
