Our Chief Mechanical Engineer Ivan Savchenko in front of the assembled diffuser, which is to be installed right above the glass walls of the flight chamber. RGB projectors will be mounted in the holes to enhance flights with incredible special effects lighting.
In an old Japanese tradition an amulet Omamori was placed into the concrete foundation of the building to ensure the gods protection.
A couple of meters of soil to be excavated, and the construction of the concrete part of the building is ready to start.
The piles are carefully engineered to easily withstand earthquakes, which are not uncommon in Japan.
Verification of assemby of the top corner parts of the air duct has been successfully passed at the factory. Slots for our notorius patented turning vanes can be seen on the diagonals.
The third set of sample profiles for tuning vanes has arrived.
Preliminary assembly of the longest sections of the air duct located under the axial fans has begun at the fibreglass parts production plant.
In addition to ensuring high fan efficiency, the air duct’s thick walls also effectively muffle noise, resulting in quiet fans.
The first axial fans for the wind tunnel in Tokyo have been accepted.
All fans meet the strictest requirements and even when overloaded are distinguished by their extremely low vibration and noise levels.
Our land plot in Japan has been sanctified according to the traditional Japanese ceremony of Jichinsai (literally means ‘pacification of the grounds’) which is always performed before the construction of a new building.
A part of construction, which our engineers nicknamed ‘trousers’, assembled at the factory.
