The new building 357 for the DTU Electromagnetic Test Centre has progressed significantly during the summer period

The new building 357 for the DTU Electromagnetic Test Centre has progressed significantly during the summer period.  Following the completion of the ground work in mid-June, all walls have now been erected, the roof has been laid, and windows have been installed.  In parallel, contracts have been completed with the test lab suppliers and the design processes for the laboratories are on-going.  The building construction work will be put on hold for 3 months from mid-October while the sensitive on-ground calibration of the flight-model antenna for the first ESA-EUTELSAT MetOp Second generation satellite is being conducted in the DTU-ESA Spherical Near-Field Antenna Test Facility in the neighboring building 353.  The building construction will resume from mid-February 2021, and from mid-June 2021 the installation of the new test laboratories will begin.
