Friday 9th December – Checking Halley’s critical leg connections


Started this morning with testing the H2 module leg hydraulics. There was some previous evidence of a minor leak however the source could not be found – so prepared to deal with it if it becomes evident during the relocation.

With a couple of the BAS team we checked the tightness and completeness of all the critical leg connections for the modules, so if we manage to move the units quicker than expected we were ahead of the game and not waiting on my checks. We then moved on to lifting all the timber panels on the bridge to inspect the brackets so that I can take a view on the likely connection adequacy.
