We are excited to share that the container sent by Moore’s Electrical and Mechanical has safely arrived on site in San Juan de la Maguana! Moore’s has taken on the medical gases system for the REVOLUTION Project and is helping from system design through full installation and testing. To read more about the extent of their involvement, visit our previous blog post HERE.
During the months of October and November, Moore’s fabricated many sub-assemblies in their Altavista, Virginia shop. These were loaded into a shipping container along with tools and ladders, a vacuum pump, copper pipe, and other materials that will be used for the installation of the system. The container was shipped, cleared tax free (saving SRI approximately $30,000), and arrived on-site two weeks ago in San Juan just hours before the COVID-19 non-essential business ban was initiated by the Dominican government. Had it not made it to San Juan, SRI would be stuck paying a daily storage fee for an undetermined amount of time. We are grateful for this partnership with Moore’s and will have more updates to come later.
We continue to feel extremely blessed by all who have contributed so far to make this project a reality. Please see the most current numbers below as of 3/31/20:
