Peeking into the storage unit of the air filters.
The pumps for component cooling water are already in place and in the pipework assembly area, impressive regulating valves dominate the scene. Still stored in a special unit, the air filters for the rooftop air-handling system are waiting for their installation. On Tuesday this coming week, the big crane that will move the coils and their components within the facility is scheduled to arrive on site.
