All of the barge pieces are at the site and the platform is coming together. We finished assembling the barge and pulled it partway out by hand to verify that the dogleg on the dredged channel is wide enough. It is! The equipment is being rapidly loaded onto the barge, and will be welded onto the flotation modules today! Yesterday we marched in the national independence day parade in the town of Junín. What an incredible experience! Thanks to everyone for your interest in the project! (PLJ on facebook)
