The Magnet Systems Group is back to work in HAB, building the Mu2e transport solenoid magnets. We performed what we believe is the first “critical lift” under the new FESHM 10200 Lift Plans chapter on Wednesday, June 3. This is test unit TSUN08 in its warm testing position. Photo: Jeff Brandt

Our group used two cranes to rotate test unit TSUN08 from the bore-tube-horizontal warm testing position (seen in the top picture) to the bore-tube-vertical cold testing position (seen here). Photo: Jeff Brandt
