Giant metal cover in place in Chernobyl

Giant metal cover in place in Chernobyl
The gigantic metal cover to protect Europe from radioactive fallout the next 100 years is now in place and sits over the remnants of reactor four at Chernobyl in Ukraine.

It is as big as two football fields, higher than the Statue of Liberty and weighs 36,000 tons. 30 years after the meltdown at Chernobyl, the world's largest movable metal construction is placed over the leaking concrete sarcophagus that currently surrounds reactor four.

The metal cover is designed to withstand both extreme weather and earthquakes, but is not yet quite finished. For the next few months it will be completed with measurement equipment, ventilation, fire protection, etc. and is expected to be completely ready to be operational in late 2017.

The new system, which in total will cost 2.2 billion euros, was financed by the Chernobyl Shelter Fund, which was launched in 1997 on the initiative of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

Among those who have made contributions to the Fund are the United States, France, Russia and Sweden.
