Thursday 5th January – an exhausting night move


With the BAS managers at site VIa I worked with the steelworkers to rig modules A and E1. I split the team so that some were measuring, adjusting and selecting steelwork members allowing the others to work from position to position simply erecting the  steelwork. This worked really well and as consequence we got everything done in a couple of hours.
Returning at 9pm from VIa, the BAS technical team planned to move E1 module and at 12.30am the initial pull got underway. I did this trip with a generator mechanic, who is over-wintering at Halley and taking care of the power generation side of the engineering. We arrived at VIa around 4:30am and got to bed in the Dewry at 5:30am exhausted. I was glad not to be riding back across to site VI for bed tonight.
